When their popular company captain Godber is killed on patrol by a roadside bomb morale in the platoon hits rock bottom. Acting on orders they round up several suspects from house-to-house searches. That night feelings at the camp are running high and as the chain of command is weakened and events spiral out of control. The lads end their tour of duty and return to England full of... stories but also shaken by their experiences.
