Two American soldiers are stranded after their helicopter crashes in enemy territory in Afghanistan. The soldiers are constantly at odds but must rely on each other to survive. As they cross poppy fields, along the way, they encounter a local family that lives in the shell of a Soviet tank and grows opium to survive. The family, full of wacky characters, is also constantly at each other’s throats. The lives of the two soldiers now depends on the mercy of these farmers.
