In this dramatization of a true story, five brothers from Iowa (James Cardwell, John Campbell, George Offerman Jr., John Alvin, Edward Ryan) grow up in an inseparable family during the Great Depression. When World War II strikes the country, the brothers feel compelled to serve their nation in its time of need. After joining the Navy, the siblings request to serve on the same ship -- a decision that turns out to be devastating for the family when their vessel is attacked at Guadalcanal.
