In World War II, before the Allied reoccupation of the Philippines, U. S. Lieutenant Craig and two other men, Burnett and Jersey, penetrate the enemy occupation to determine the strength and position of the Japanese forces. They contact Paco, a guerrilla leader, who agrees to help them, but the Japanese detect their presence and threaten to destroy a village unless the Americans surrender. Paco and his men, however, are able to capture the village. Craig then meets a local bandit who promises him information about the Japanese in exchange for his radio, but when Craig is delayed while checking the information, the impatient bandit destroys the radio and runs off. Unable to transmit his intelligence, Craig sneaks into a Japanese-held village and sends his message by enemy radio, but he and his men are apprehended. The Americans, with Paco and his guerrillas, battle with the Japanese; and Burnett, Paco, and all his men are killed. Only Craig and Jersey escape.
