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