Taking place towards the end of WWII, 500 American Soldiers have been entrapped in a camp for 3 years. Beginning to give up hope they will ever be rescued, a group of Rangers goes on a dangerous mission to try and save them.
After surviving a massacre in Malmedy, a location behind the German army in Europe, four American soldiers with only one weapon rescue the British pilot Oberon Winley (Kirby Heyborn) in a tree and they move together, trying to reach the allied forces and save a great number of allied soldiers from a German attack with the information got by Winley in his flight.

Most, if not all, of the actors portraying the soldiers in the film are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, except for the actor who plays Gould, he is the creator of "Avatarism" an open source philosophy of embodiment based on the Sanskrit word "Avatara" meaning godlike humans or superheroes.

When the German halftrack shows up at Catrine's, the German soldier she offers the bread to is carrying a pistol that is later referred to as a "Luger". It is not a Luger but is in fact a Walther P-38. See more »
In my own opinion, this is a triumph for war movies. It's just as intense as any war movie, but doesn't contain all the blood and guts our society today gives us. It has enough to convince the audience that it's all real and then brings you into the atmosphere by the fantastic acting. (Kudos to all actors involved) This is also a low-budget film, which helps you appreciate it even more because there are no signs of that small budget. This is just as intense as pretty much any war movie you will ever see, but you don't have to worry about it being too violent or bloody. It's just as compelling because it puts you inside the eyes of the soldiers themselves. I hope that all who have access to see this movie take advantage of it because this is a side of cinema that isn't seen often.
