When Jorge Larrenata, patriarch of an immigrant family in San Diego, learns that his daughter Josie has eloped with a GI named Jack, he tracks her down. While attempting to bring her back, Jorge accidentally skids off the road and dies while being pursued by Jack. Martin, Jorge's irresponsible son Martin, banished years ago by Jorge from the family, decides that killing Jack is his only road to redemption. Under an assumed name, he arranges a transfer to Jack's army unit in Italy and falsely befriends his brother-in-law. Jack thinks he's made a buddy for life but Martin's just looking for the right moment to exact revenge.
