A group of Army Rangers in training has descended upon a rainy Panamanian jungle in the midst of a hurricane.  Their brash sergeant, Nathan West (Samuel L. Jackson) orders them to trek through the treacherous conditions while firing upon mechanized targets. 

After seventeen hours just two men emergealive: Ray Dunbar (Brian Van Holt) and Levi Kendall(Giovanni Ribisi).  Dunbar and Kendallprovide two drastically different, and continuously evolving accounts of what happened that night.  Meanwhile Colonel Bill Styles (Timothy Daly) grows increasingly concerned that officials from Washington may visit the base to intervene, and hastens to close the case.
