After deserting the U.S. Army because of the racist actions of his superior, Berenger and his men in the St. Patrick's Brigade join up with Mexican forces to fight against an American invasion in the 1840s. As in many a war film, Berenger's character is the sort who tries to be the moral center of his unit while at the same time ordering his men to kill--and having to watch them be killed.
Berenger pulls off the balancing act well, and costars de Almeida and Romo, as a woman who's torn between two men, offer well-defined supporting roles.
