Danny Glover plays Commander Frank Camparelli, the battle-hardened sqaudron leader of an aircraft carrier during the Vietnam War. Brad Johnson is pilot Jake Grafton, a disillusioned young renegade looking for payback. Willem Dafoe is Cole, the cynical, hell-bent bombadier Grafton recruits to fly an unauthorised mission behind enemy lines. The target: a missile depot in Hanoi. The plane: the A-6 Intruder, a low-altitude bomber with no defensive weapons. The risk: court-martial at the hands of Commander Camparelli...if they live to return.
