The events of the film take place in the first half of the nineties, when terrible times began in the African republic of Samoli. Then there was a crisis, because of which innocent people died. They sorely lacked provisions. The situation was exacerbated by the incredibly high level of crime, which no one fought. Armed people seized power, thereby taking control of the entire territory. In the end, this forced the UN to take decisive action. One and a half thousand American soldiers from an elite unit were sent there, whose task was to ensure order and the fight against crime. Humanitarian aid was also sent there, thanks to which the situation was to stabilize.
However, in one of the settlements, lawlessness continued. A man who took control of power killed people and took all humanitarian aid into their own hands. And every day the situation became more and more tense. In the center is a young officer who is entrusted with leading a detachment and capturing this man terrorizing the civilian population. The Americans have to fight with a huge number of armed people who have nothing to lose.
