We sometimes forget that South Korea, Australia and several other nations participated in the Vietnam War on the U.S. side. In this dark-toned war action film, Straker (Richard Norton) is an Aussie commando whose mission is to rescue his commander (Paul Holmes) and other POWs from captivity. After many escapades, he finally meets up with him, and discovers that the man is suffering from leprosy. Then he has to fight his way back out of the jungle.
