In late 1968, three friends in Pennsylvania – Mike Vronsky, Steven Pushkov and Nick Chevotarevich – work in a steel mill and hunt for deer with their co-workers Axel and Stan, and bartender friend John. Mike, Steven and Nick are preparing to leave for military service in Vietnam. Steven is engaged to Angela, who is secretly impregnated by another man. Mike and Nick are close friends who live together and both love Linda, who will be moving into their home to escape from her abusive and alcoholic father. During Steven and Angela’s wedding, Nick asks for Linda’s hand, and she accepts. As the newlyweds drive away, Nick asks Mike to not abandon him in Vietnam. Mike, Nick and their friends make a final deer hunt. As is his custom, Mike fires a single shot, which kills the deer.

In Vietnam in early 1969, Mike is suddenly reunited with Nick and Steven, but the trio, along with other soldiers, are captured by the Viet Cong. They are imprisoned in a cage along a river and forced to rotate participating in a torturous game of Russian roulette against other soldiers while the jailers place bets. Steven yields to fear and exhaustion and fires his round at the ceiling. As punishment for breaking the rules, Steven is thrown into a separate cage that is immersed in a river filled with rats and dead bodies. Mike convinces Nick to attempt an escape by inserting three rounds into the revolver’s cylinder; after convincing their tormentors with the increased risk, they kill the captors and free Steven from the cage.
