1975, True Life
Though a fellow cadet's claim that he cheated on a test has yet to be proven, West Point student James Pelosi (Richard Thomas) is rendered an outcast at the mere suggestion that he's a rule-breaker. Other cadets subject Pelosi to what's known as "the silence." This means they won't talk to him, study with him or even acknowledge his existence. In this film, inspired by real events, Pelosi must ultimately decide whether to stand tough or quit his studies.
