Set in the jungles of Burma, this war drama has Todd leading a British patrol that captures a Japanese scout, Takaki. Todd wants to bring the prisoner alive to headquarters to be interrogated, but the rest of the patrol wants to kill the scout. Harvey is ordered to watch Takaki and

befriends the prisoner. A rock slide blocks the patrol's only path back to their base, and while they contemplate their fate, they discover that the Japanese soldier has looted them. Again, the men want him shot, so McCallum finally does it. Nearby Japanese troops hear the shot and advance on the

patrol. Harris and McCallum are the only ones to survive the fighting. The Japanese find Takaki's canteen on McCallum, and with a weird twist of fate Harris and McCallum now become the prisoners that the patrol (this time Japanese) want to shoot.
