During World War II, onboard a ship in the U.S. Pacific Fleet, an event occurs unlike any that the United States Navy has ever experienced. A ship's captain is removed from his command by his executive officer in an apparent outright act of mutiny.

An enlightening retrospective, John Heyer, Pat Jackson and Tom Kruse lovingly recount their life's work with amusing anecdotes and engaging honesty, providing a delightful companion piece to the seminal 1954 documentary"--Container
