A group of elite U.S. soldiers are sent into Mogadishu, Somalia in October 1993
as part of a U.N. peacekeeping operation.
Their mission: to abduct two top lieutenants of the Somali warlord, Mohamed
Farrah Aidid, as part of a strategy to quell the civil war and famine that is
ravaging the country.
The U. S. troops come to Somalia with good intentions, hoping to save lives and
not take them. Increasingly mired in the incomprehensible, feudal politics of
Somalia- in which one clan has been pitted against another for a millennium-the
soldiers are destined for a brutal education when the carefully planned mission
takes unexpected turns. .. resulting in the U.S. military's single biggest
firefight since Vietnam.
