It's 1971 and a company of draftee's including Roland Bozz (Colin Farrell), Miter (Clifton Collins Jr.), Cantwell (Thomas Guiry), Paxton (Matthew Davis), Johnson (Russell Richardson) and Wilson (Shea Whigham) are sent to an Army Infantry training camp in Fort Polk, Louisiana. Bozz presents himself as a troublemaker, thinking the Army won't have much use for him. He encourages the other men to stand up and do what they can to be ejected too. But it does little good for him as the high ranking officials see him as the one with intelligence and ambition that could make him a leader someday. But will anyone be ready for their final test at the mocked up, simulated war zone, wilderness known as Tigerland, their final stop before entering Vietnam.
