When a Colonel disobeys a direct order to not send his soldiers on a rescue mission in Haiti, things are made worse when a photographer takes a picture that appears to show one of the American soldiers using a child as a human shield, during the fire fight that brakes out during the rescue. Now the SecNav demands that JAG court-martial the Colonel against their advice.
Harm and Mac must prosecute, while Chegwidden decides to personally defend the Colonel. However, will Harm’s aggressive search for the truth in Haiti help or hurt his case? Plus, Mac is confronted with prosecuting a fellow military officer she once had a secret past relation with, when she was his subordinate.
