At the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba, Private William Santiago is a weak Marine, has poor relations with other Marines, and has broken the chain of command to ask to be transferred away. Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Markinson advocates that Santiago be transferred; however, Base Commander Colonel Nathan Jessup orders Santiago’s platoon commander, Lieutenant Jonathan James Kendrick, to “train” Santiago. Santiago dies shortly afterwards. Marines Harold Dawson and Louden Downey are accused of his murder and face a court-martial. While it is believed that the motive in Santiago’s murder was retribution for naming Dawson in a fenceline shooting, Naval investigator and lawyer Joanne Galloway suspects Dawson and Downey carried out a “code red” order: a violent extrajudicial punishment. Galloway wants to defend them, but the case is given to lieutenant Daniel Kaffee, a callow lawyer with a penchant for plea bargains. Galloway is bothered by Kaffee’s blase approach, and Kaffee resents Galloway’s interference.

Kaffee and Galloway question Colonel Jessup and others at Guantanamo Bay. Under questioning, Jessup claims Santiago was set to be transferred the next day. When Kaffee negotiates a plea bargain with the prosecutor Captain Jack Ross, Dawson and Downey refuse, insisting that Kendrick gave them the “code red” order and that they never intended Santiago to die. Dawson sees Kaffee as dishonorable by pursuing a plea bargain over defending their actions. Kaffee plans to have himself removed as counsel as he sees the trial as pointless. At the arraignment, Kaffee unexpectedly enters a plea of not guilty. He explains to Galloway that he was chosen to handle the case because he was expected to accept a plea, and the matter would be kept quiet.
