March 2002, Shahekot Valley, Afghanistan - the end of Operation
Three American soldiers are separated from their company.
As the clock ticks - six hours to descend a rugged moutain
to the pick up zone - they are bombarded by mortar shells.
Most of their equipment is destroyed.
Hackett, the peacekeeper between Preach and Slick, is killed.
Wounded and bleeding, Slick is unable to walk. Preach, the
only soldier to survive relatively unscathed, struggles to
carry Slick down the mountain to safety. As their journey
progresses, Preach discovers a despicable act Slick committed
and animosity rages between them. Resentful of Preach's sanctimonious
attitude, Slick challenges Preach to leave him behind. Preach,
in good conscience, cannot. As he caries Slick to safety,
Preach's one thought is to prove himself a hero to the foster
father who raised him. Although both soldiers arrive at the
base of the mountain moments before the chopper arrives, one
dies, leaving the other to deal with the outcome of their
confessions on the mountainside.
