In 1946, three soldiers who paid dearly to defend their country come home and attempt to resume the lives they led before World War II. Cliff Harper (Guy Madison) returns physically unharmed but with deep emotional scars. Bill Tabeshaw (Robert Mitchum) wants to buy a ranch, but the metal plate in his skull will forever keep him from his dream. And former heavyweight boxing champion Perry Kincheloe (Bill Williams) lost both legs and now refuses to use his prostheses to walk. But a confrontation with a common enemy in their hometown helps the trio to find a renewed reason to fight for the lives they once had.
