In this Japanese WW II drama set in northern China near the war's end, a youthful officer disregards advice and launches an attack against the Chinese. As a result his unit is slaughtered and he is taken captive. Later a reward is posted for his return. To earn the reward the leader of a band of Chinese guerrillas takes four fighters and sets off to free the Japanese hostage as he prefers Japanese rule to Communist rule. The guerrillas must race against an avaricious Chinese intelligence agent who also wants the reward.
