SYNOPSIS

Early in the Korean War, three American soldiers--Sgt. Ed Brent, Staff Sgt. Peter Kane, and Pvt. Kirk Wilson--escape from their North Korean captors, who then pursue the men as they attempt to return to the American lines. A Korean couple who give them shelter are killed by the Communists, while their young son hides in the hills. Despite Kane's objections, Brent takes along the boy, Han, and the abandoned K-9 Corps police dog he has adopted. The boy and his dog become important contributors to the survival effort. After Wilson is killed by a land mine, the group is joined by Corporal Estway, a brainwashed escapee, and he repairs a damaged radio so that they may communicate with their headquarters. They succeed in killing their pursuers, but Han is wounded and becomes separated from the others.

They do find the boy, but before they are rescued the dog is killed. Returning to their headquarters, the two soldiers successfully defend themselves against the charge that they resisted rescue.
