1971. A nation stands divided over the escalating war in Vietnam. Thousands of young Americans lie dead on foreign soil. At Fort Polk, Louisiana, thousands more prepare to join them.
The specter of combat hangs over the men of A-Company, Second Platoon, as they enter the final stage of infantry training. They will be sent to the war. Each man deals with this prospect in his own way. One man's defiance, however, galvanizes every member of the platoon. Soon after Roland Bozz joins A-Company, the lines of opinion that divide the conscience of the nation begin to penetrate the ranks of the soldiers.
Deep in the backwoods of Louisiana, with little hope of escaping Vietnam, Bozz rushes towards an action that no one - not even he - could have anticipated.
