In this Japanese war movie, a rebellious war hero disobeys orders. For his punishment, the fellow is sent to the Chinese front. He goes there and finds that his brother was killed for desertion. This enrages the soldier who explodes and finds himself in deeper trouble, and he is faced with a difficult choice: he can either be court-martialed, or he can perform a kamikaze mission. He chooses the latter, and along with a cadre of freed prisoners, must capture a Chinese fort. They do succeed in their mission, but unfortunately the brave fighters are overpowered by the sheer numbers of the Chinese who continually bombard the fortress.
