Brief Synopsis

Three marines take shore leave in San Francisco during World War II: Wagner to a lower class dysfunctional family, Hunter to his pregnant fiancée, and the upper class Dillman to a high-living playgirl. Each must decide whether to make the best of their situation, or break out of it. Wagner drowns his troubles in alcohol, losing the respect of a potential lover; Hunter marries his fiancée but realizes he may not survive the war to see his child; while Dillman sheds his decadent girlfriend for a pure-hearted Hawaiian nurse. Later in battle, a heroic act costs one of the marines his life.
