Additional Info

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.
