Throughout the vicious Pacific struggle of World War Two, there was one class of fighting machines that were at the spearhead of every naval battle. Over 800 feet in length and at over 27 .000 tons, the Aircraft Carriers were the largest ships built by the US in World War Two. With the ability to launch hundreds of fighter bombers against shipping and island bases, they tore to the heart of the enemy. They wrought a terrifying destruction on the Japanese, and played a major role in the final victory against Japan. The pride of the U.S. Navy Pacific fleet during WWII was the Essex Class aircraft carriers. They were able to launch hundreds of aircraft against the enemy with devastating results, and despite Japanese kamikaze attacks, not one Essex carrier was lost. Using archival footage, this film goes into battle and below decks with the Essex carriers, showing what it was like to serve aboard these floating cities during WWII.

Massie plays a young man sentenced to a year's prison term for slugging a man in a jealous fight over his girl friend. He is assigned kitchen duties and soon fits into the highly structured routines of the prisoners. This includes swiping food from the kitchen to trade with men from other areas. When a cellmate is caught bringing a knife out of the kitchen, Massie takes the blame in order to allow his mate to be set free in a month after a long stay. Script and direction take a personable view of prison life, showing the prisoners as individuals. Though the picture is filled with humorous moments, underneath is the continual feeling of the degradation and humiliation the prisoners must endure.
