Per compiere la missione il maggiore Reisman ha a sua disposizione dodici militari, condannati alla pena capitale o a trent'anni per gravissimi reati, ai quali non viene offerta altra scelta che scontare la pena o affrontare la morte nell'assalto al castello. In compenso, per coloro che riusciranno a sopravvivere, la condanna verrà annullata.
