Plot Summary
Though a fellow cadet's claim that he cheated on a test has yet to be proven, West Point student James Pelosi (Richard Thomas) is rendered an outcast at the mere suggestion that he's a rule-breaker. Other cadets subject Pelosi to what's known as "the silence." This means they won't talk to him, study with him or even acknowledge his existence.
