As the war in Vietnam heightens, Ian and Mickey find themselves enrolled in the U.S Army - one considerably less pleased to be there than the other. During basic training, they become friends, and quickly realise that if they want to make it out alive, they need someone to watch their back. Together, they will face many obstacles, both in country, and on the home front, but ultimately, will they survive?
