Summary of A Few Good Men
In this dramatic courtroom thriller, LT Daniel Kaffee, a Navy lawyer who has never seen the inside of the courtroom, defends two stubborn Marines who have been accused of murdering a colleague (Santiago).
At Guantanamo Marine Base, a private is attacked by 2 other marines and dies as a result. An investigation is conducted by Lt. Commander Jo Galloway and reveals to her superiors that she believes that the private was attacked because he was going over the head of Colonel Jessup, the base commander and was threatening to rat out a superior officer for firing an illegal shot at the Cuban side of the island unless he got a transfer, so Jessup (Jack Nicohlson) ordered a "code red" which is an extreme form of punishment intended to keep marines in order and enforcing discipline. This led to Santiago's death.
