In this dramatic thriller, a training exercise in a Panama jungle involving six Army Ranger cadets and brutal Sergeant Nathan West (Samuel L. Jackson) goes bad. Two survivors emerge with guns blazing. Tom Hardy (John Travolta), a rogue DEA agent and former Ranger, is called in to find some answers. Hardy questions the two remaining Rangers with the help of the reluctant official Army investigator, Lt. Julia Osborne (Connie Nielsen). Hardy and Osborne try to reconstruct the events in the jungle and discover who is to blame. But through the process, they uncover dark secrets and a web of deception and corruption that veil the truth.
