Summary
A World War II Marine sergeant and a Roman Catholic nun are both marooned together on a South Pacific island, hemmed in by surrounding Japanese troops. The sergeant does his best to make the nun's ordeal less painful, but is torn by his growing love for her. The nun is equally fond of the sergeant, but refuses to renounce her vows. Their unrealized ardor mellows into mutual respect as they struggle to survive before help arrives
