Synopsis

As the US Army sinks deeper into the Vietnam War, attempting to dig out the Vietcong from an impenetrable jungle, one officer, Captain Willard, is sent on a mission by the Special Forces to locate and liquidate Colonel Kurtz, an ex-Green Beret who cruelly rules over a primitive 'mountain people', trenched in at the Cambodian border.
