During the Korean conflict Calhoun, Bendix, and Ivers escape their captors to flee across enemy lines to freedom, a feat that is made possible only through the efforts of a young boy and his German Shepherd dog. The boy's parents were earlier killed by the communists for harboring the

American soldiers. Ivers is killed and the brainwashed Jaeckel joins the survivors. Nearing their rescue helicopter, Calhoun and Bendix refuse to board until they are sure that the Korean lad who helped them is safe. Though they will have to face a possible court-martial, they bring the youth back

to America with them, and Calhoun acts as his adopted father. Though a good cast was assembled for this routine feature, it was virtually wasted on material laden with sappy cliches and too much talk.
