Some say that all is fair in love and war, and casualties are always a part of any war. This war story tells a tale of five Vietnam soldiers who handle themselves differently. The crew decides to kidnap a woman from the opposing side, because they are in the middle of a war. Four of the soldiers perform torturous acts on the woman prisoner such as rape and other abuses. The fifth solider, however, does not believe in the concept of raping and pillaging the enemy. Eventually, someone kills the hostage woman. The fifth solider is upset about what happened and vows to implement justice in the situation, while the other soldiers chalk up the act as a simple and quite normal, casualty of war.
