Over the course of 10 days in May 1969, an infantry squad led by Lt. Frantz (Dylan McDermott) and composed of both seasoned troops and new recruits, attempts to take a hill during the Vietnam War. In between attacks, the squad members deal with the other psychological stresses of the war, including the effect on the morale of the anti-war movement back home and flashes of racial hostility between white and African-American soldiers, all meditated by the cool-headed medic, Doc (Courtney B. Vance). The showing includes a free lunch. Registration required.
