Description "Japanese troops have invaded Malaya. A British patrol is in the jungle trying to assess the strength of the Japanese invasion. A Japanese soldier stumbles on the hut. They capture him and soon realise that the Japanese army is marching south in strength. The characters of the members of the patrol are sharply defined and allow us to see the moral dilemmas soldiers sometimes have to face from many different points of view".
