Colonel Jack Knowles (Roy Scheider), a maverick American Army officer stationed along the West German/Czech border, begins a rivalry with his Russian counterpart, Colonel Valachev (Jurgen Prochnow), on the other side. What starts out as a personal war between two soldiers could quickly escalate into an all-out military conflict that may have global ramifications.
