An ex-SAS man and loner is recruited by a rag tag band of men to lead them to freedom from a brutal military dictatorship in Guatemala.
Thrown out of the SAS for insubordination, Gord Brown spends his dreary, uneventful days on a remote salmon farm in Scotland. Everything changes when he is approached by three Guatemalan Indians, who are desperately searching for a fighting man, someone to mastermind an uprising against the brutal military dictatorship who have massacred so many of their people. Suddenly his life has a purpose once again.
The four men land in Cuba and fly across into the jungles of Guatemala, where they rapidly assemble a guerilla army. But as they approach the capital city, the government becomes increasingly threatened by their presence and is determined to annihilate them at all costs...
