Summary: Audie Murphy performs in his second World War II movie after his autobiographical movie, TO HELL AND BACK. In this movie, Audie plays Craig Benson who is a civilian employee of the Navy working to help supply guerrilla insurgents in the Philippine Islands during World War II. The Japanese have already occupied the Pacific island country and the job is extremely hazardous. But Craig Benson has an ulterior motive for working in the enemy occupied islands. He is looking for his wife Ruth, played by Dolores Michaels, who has been fighting in the resistance with a group of local guerrillas with whom he was separated from two years before. Unfortunately, she believes her husband to be dead and has become romantically involved with the Filipino resistance leader Julio Fontana, played by Alejandro Rey.
