A group of eight South African mercenaries are driven to fatigue and insanity in this violent anti-war drama. Cooper (Sean Taylor) narrates as one of the soldiers led by the bloodthirsty O'Grady (Greg Latter). Set out on a search-and-destroy mission, the group kills a young cowherd and a witch doctor before slaughtering an entire village, and the shaman casts his supernatural spell from beyond the grave on the already insane soldiers. The feature serves as a metaphorical example of the political chaos and violence in South Africa.
