Plot – Mike, Nick and Steven work in a steel mill in Clayton, Pennsylvania, and in their spare time they like go hunting deers. War breaks out in Vietnam and they have to enlist but before the departure, Steven marries Angela. During the war, the three friends suffer a terrible imprisonment. When they manage to escape, Steven is paralyzed in a hospital, while Nick hides in Saigon chased by the Russian roulette organizers and Mike, back home, comforts Linda, Nick's girlfriend. During a hunt, he saves a deer and tries to convince Steven to rejoin his wife. Again in the chaotic and hellish Saigon, which is living a complete decline, Mike tries in vain to prevent Nick to play a last, deadly game.
