Michael, Steve, Stan, and Nick are young factory workers from Pennsylvania who have enlisted in the Vietnam War. Before they depart, they go on one last deer hunt together. They also attend the wedding of Steve who's marrying his pregnant girlfriend, Angela and their wedding reception also serves a town wide farewell party for all four. After serving in Vietnam and experiencing many horrors, one is severely injured and the other three are sent to a Vietcong prison camp where they're forced to play Russian roulette against each other. Michael makes their physical escape possible, but can they ever escape their emotional trauma?
