The year is 1972 and Jake (Brad Johnson) is a pilot fighting in the Vietnam War, reeling from the recent loss of his bombardier.  His new bombardier, Virgil (Willem Dafoe) is similarly disgruntled.  The Vietnamese are displaying the remains of captured American planes in a Hanoi park and both men are anxious to launch an airstrike on it.

 

That's difficult however, since the Paris Peace Talks have halted all attacks on the city.  Virgil and Jake eventually muster up the courage to bomb the park despite the inevitable fate of being court martialed.
