When a young cadet dies at his military school, his estranged father pays his respects. Traveling to the small California island academy. Steve Conway meets with obstacles and military red tape in the explanation as to how his son died. The three ex-Marine officers running the school and the cadets themselves put up stone walls of silence. The accidental death ruling in reality turns out to be a cover up for a hazing incident and the police are notified. Singers Jimmy Boyd and Conway Twitty are cast as contemporaries of the dead cadet.
