During the horrors of the Vietnam war, squad leader Sergeant Tony Meserve is frustrated when his squad is denied leave for an extended period and orders his men to kidnap a poor Vietnamese farm girl. Private Eriksson strenuously objects but he is a lone voice against the rest of the men, deserted by his friends and forced to stand guard outside a hut as the men gang-rape the kidnapped girl. During a fire-fight she attempts to escape; Eriksson tries to protect her from Merserve’s anger but is himself clubbed down by Merserve and watches as the squad shoot at the girl until she falls to her death from a bridge. They all think it’s the end of the matter – but it is only the beginning…Based on a true incident on Hill 192.
