Plot

A group of American Army nurses are captured by the Japanese in April 1942. They are marched along with American soldiers as part of the Bataan Death March. They are put in a prisoner-of-war camp in Bataan, where they spend nearly three years of their lives. The story focuses on Lt. Margaret Ann "Maggie" Jessup, the head army nurse who survived the camp, and testifies against the Japanese, and lobbies for awards of valor to be given to the women prisoners, in front of the United States Congressional subcommittee years later as a Colonel.
