Maj. Cargill (Richard Basehart) is accused of aiding his captors while held in a North Korean prison during the war and brought up on charges of treason. Col. William Edwards (Richard Widmark) has been assigned to defend the major in his court martial, but it's not an easy case for the colonel. More than a dozen witnesses are prepared to testify against Cargill, and the major himself admits his guilt. But Edwards begins to suspect that the major is innocent and covering up for someone else.
