Set in the Philippines during WWII, this suspenseful and realistic war drama chronicles the courage of a unit of US Marines as they try to save a plantation owner/Allied spy and his beautiful daughter from the Japanese who have taken over a densely jungled island. The spy has crucial information to relay so the Marines must hurry. Unfortunately, during the rescue, the platoon is ambushed and all but one sailor, the spy and his daughter are killed. Now the three must somehow survive the jungle and make it to safety before it is too late. The story was shot on location in Hawaii.
