Two movies in one. The first half focuses on the training of a squad of Marine grunts on Parris Island. Post-training, we follow the grunts to battle of Hue City, the climactic battle of the 1968 Tet Offensive and the turning point of the Vietnam War as seen through the eyes of a cynical reporter nicknamed Joker (Modine).
