A decorated Korean War hero inexplicably collaborates with the enemy while interred in a POW camp and is court-martialed.
The original teleplay writer, Rod Serling, liked the film adaptation. But he felt the film version could and should have shown some of the actual POW camp in flashbacks. He did however feel that the scene with the father and son alone was better written in the film version than in his original teleplay.
