Captain Masters is on the move, September 1942, in the Pacific deep in enemy territory. These were desperate times needing desperate measures. Men were cast in the throes of battle against a very well trained and formidable opponent, hoping to come out alive. After an arduous bombing raid that dealt heavy losses, Masters and his two other pilots were on their way home. They found they had no place to go: their carrier was sunk. Thinking quickly, Captain Masters devises a plan to make a 1500 mile trek through enemy territory to Australia.
