Yu Yuan, a "volunteer" in the Chinese Army sent to bolster the Communists during the Korean War, sees his hopes of ever returning home evaporate when he is captured by the Americans and sent to a POW camp where his ability to speak English results in his being the unofficial translator for the pro-Nationalist and pro-Communist factions in the camp.
