During the Vietnam War, four fresh-faced Army recruits are stuck waiting for their assignments in a vacant barracks. The pressures of war loom large, and before long the soldiers, who differ wildly in terms of temperament, race and sexual orientation, are at each other's throats. Can the soldiers -- including Carlyle (Michael Wright), an unpredictable hot head, and Richie (Mitchell Lichtenstein), an effeminate homosexual -- overcome their fits of rage, racism and homophobia?
