Plot Summary
During a mission on a Mediterranean island, a British commanding officer orders his soldiers to be completely silent to avoid detection. But sheepish new recruit Pvt. Potter (Tom Courtenay) screams in fear, compromising the mission and causing the death of a fellow soldier. When Potter claims that he shouted because he saw God, the concept of religious persecution versus military duty sparks a debate among doctors, psychiatrists and priests to determine Potter's punishment.
