"...A nobly conceived on-the-scene look at the battle between the Sandinistas and the U.S.-backed Contras in Nicaragua..."
The morality of America's undercover wars comes under scrutiny in this realistic drama set in Nicaragua. Secretly sent into combat without his dog tags, a Green Beret finds himself fighting a war in the jungles of South America that's not his and against an "enemy" that includes innocent civilians.

- Haskell Wexler bailed out George Lucas on AMERICAN GRAFFITI when Lucas was falling behind schedule, working for much less than his usual rate; the STAR WARS creator returned the favor by acting as an uncredited producer on this film.
