Major Geoffrey Vickers is a dashing young officer with the 27th Lancers in India. He's engaged to the beautiful Elsa Campbell but unknown to him, she has fallen in love with his brother Perry Vickers and he with her. When he is sent out on patrol, Surat Khan attacks the fort killing everyone there, soldier and civilian alike, including many women and children. Vickers and the men of the 27th Lancers get their chance at revenge when England goes to war with Russia. They are transferred to the Crimea where Surat Khan has sought protection of his Russian allies. Vickers leads the men in the famous charge into the valley of death. The film was remade in 1968 and released under the same title, The Charge of the Light Brigade.
