This is a true story about the Battle of Longewala in West Rajastan during the war of 1971 between India and Pakistan. The war started on December 5th 1971 when a Pakistani infantry brigade crossed the 'Border' 16 Kilometers away from Longewala. Many young men, including Dharm Veer (Akshaye Khanna) and a Raja of Rajastan (Sunil Shetty) come together to fight a war with their battalion leader, Kuldeep Singh (Sunny Deol). As they wait for the war to develop, they tell stories about their family and friends. Who lives, who dies, who wins, who loses?
