During the final days of the first World War, Lt. William Rivers leads a squad of white U.S. soldiers behind enemy lines to locate a missing platoon of African American soldiers. Lt. Rivers must overcome the horrors of trench warfare as well as the racial and political chasm that divides Americans.
