It is April the 10th 1967 and a platoon of ten American soldiers have been dispatched to the jungles of Ecuador concerning the discovering of a possible Viet Cong settlement.

Upon arrival they meet up with an American Dispatch Nurse named Hailey Charleston whom states that there is no stoway Vietnamese in the region just injured native Ecuadorians she had been dispatched to tend to.

The Platoon's sergeant and two corporal brothers however lead the platoon to a secret Vietnamese village set up and a massacre ensues which six of the 10 platoon soldiers stay out of.

The six try to argue towards the Sergeant and his two brother corporals that they weren't involved in the Vietnamese Cong but rather innocent Vietnamese Immigrant Civilians who posed no threat.

The Sergeant argues against them and as they turn their backs he orders the other remaining four soldiers to have them killed that night.
