An Army major is brought to the Judge Advocate General's office for inquiry before being court martialed for collaboration with the enemy in Korea. It seems a cut and dried case to the General, but not to the Colonel who interrogates him. The Major will not talk. In a series of flashbacks we discover the truth of the events in the prison camp: the General's son had turned informer to be let off from more punishment. The prisoners drew lots and one of them killed him. He did not die gloriously as the General thought. The major then turned color in order to save his men from further punishment.
