Separated from his fellow American soldiers, Benny Beer walks alone on a frozen plain in Germany during World War II.

In Korea, he is captured and sent to a Chinese prison camp, where for two and a half long years he practices the fine art of self-preservation and fights the cruelty and indifference of his captors with compassion, care, and a fierce sense of humor.
