It’s 1971 and Rolin Bozz has been drafted. He is against the war in Vietnam. He becomes friends with Jim Paxton, a writer who journals all his army camp experiences. Bozz is quick-thinking and becomes known for helping others find a way out of the army. His leadership skills propel him to squad leader, where he comes to the attention of an aggressive bigot named Wilson. When Bozz stands up for soldiers that Wilson targets, Wilson turns his ire on Bozz. The two fight and later have an altercation during a training exercise in which Wilson fires real ammunition. He gets court martialed. Bozz uses the chaos of the exercise to wound his friend Paxton so he will not be sent to Vietnam.
