When American President Jordan Lyman (Fredric March) prepares to sign a nuclear disarmament treaty with the Soviet Union, head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General James M. Scott (Burt Lancaster) takes moves to stop him. While Scott and other opposed generals work on a coup d'etat, aide Colonel 'Jiggs' Casey (Kirk Douglas) finds out what they are up to and warns Lyman. However, the President's attempts to gain proof are thwarted when the men he sends to obtain it are either captured or killed by Scott.
