During the First World War, two American soldiers become trapped in no man's land. Expecting to die, W. Dangerfield Phelps III decides to fulfill his fondest desire: to beat up his sergeant, whom he's had to endure since boot camp. While they're brawling, the Germans sneak up and capture them. In a German prison camp, the two become friends, when Phelps takes responsibility for an unflattering caricature he drew of a guard, rather than let O'Gaffney take the blame. The two escape, stealing the white robes of Arab prisoners to blend in with the snow. However, they encounter (and are forced to join) a group of similarly garbed Arab prisoners being sent by train to Constantinople.
