Synopsis

Harry Feversham (Beau Bridges) comes from a military background, and is expected to carry on the family tradition when he is called up to fight in Sudan in 1880. However, he cannot bear to be torn away from his new fiancée Ethne (Jane Seymour), so refuses the commission and secretly resigns. Feversham realises his decision has become public knowledge when he receives a series of white feathers - the soldier's sign of arch cowardice. Determined to win back the respect of his peers, and of Ethne, he travels to Sudan under his own steam and resolves to prove himself on the battlefield.
