Afghanistan, 1981 and the Soviet Union is locked in a futile and bloody battle with the Mujaheden guerrillas. Separated from their patrol, the crew of Russian T-62 engages in a deadly game of cat and mouse with the local insurgents led by Taj (Steven Bauer from TRAFFIC). The tyrannical tank commander Daskal (George Dzundza from CRIMSON TIDE) wreaks havoc on a peaceful Afghani village, pushing the moral boundaries of the tank driver Koverchanko (Jason Patric from THE LOST BOYS) to the limits. He must make the ultimate choice: to be true to his country or true to his heart. Filled with spectacular action sequences, this film is a realistic document about men at war and the effect war has on the human conscience. It portrays fighting men who, while under severe stress, manage to find a common humanity amid death and destruction…An epic of modern warfare, handsomely produced and superbly executed.
