Cadence is set in the mid 1960s and follows Army Private Bean (Charlie Sheen), who is sent to the stockade in West Germany for getting drunk and going AWOL after his father's death. He is given a 90-day sentence.

Bean soon realizes that he is the only white prisoner among a group of black inmates, all serving time for various crimes, some very serious. Master Sergeant McKinney (Martin Sheen), who is also making his directorial debut in this film, is in charge of the stockade and develops a dislike for Bean because he refuses to turn against his fellow prisoners.

Every day, the prisoners are taken to work on land near the stockade. Bean becomes fascinated with a broken windmill in the field and obtains permission to repair it during breaks. Other prisoners from the block join in to help Bean with the windmill.

However, Sergeant McKinney's animosity towards Bean continues to grow. As McKinney becomes more aggressive, Bean becomes more determined. The tension between them escalates, leading to a confrontation. The question remains: who will emerge victorious?
