what's the story
From the director of "FANDANGO," comes an action-adventure set during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. It is told from the perspective of a Russian tank crew being stalked by freedom fighters after their village is attacked. The drama centers on one of the Russian soldiers who, in his conversation with an Afgan rebel leader, struggles to find a common humanity within their divergent cultures. Featured players include Steven Bauer as the Afgan, Jason Patric as the young soviet and George Dzundza as the tank commander. This picture is based on William ("Extremities") Mastrosimone's play, "Nana Wa Tai" ("Welcoming Guests, Mercy and Revenge"), which was staged in Los Angeles in 1986.
