The devotion of an army general to military morality becomes a psychosis in this drama. Most of the story is told in flashback as the general stays in Belgium to wait for his upcoming trial for the slaughter of innocent people in Vietnam. In one flashback, he is seen killing his wife after he catches her with another man. Many scenes of his actions in Vietnam are also witnessed. Back in the present, he is seen killing his daughter when he catches her with an orderly. In turn, the orderly kills the sadistic general.
