In 1969, between May 11th and May 20th, the 101st Airborne Division fought the Vietcong in one of the bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War. The battle was later dubbed Hamburger Hill because of the heavy artillery fire that turned the troops into hamburger meat. This film documents the 11 assaults it took to gain the hill amidst the stark reality of the horrors of war.

Alek Neuman (Klaus Maria Brandauer) is a Russian who emigrates to Brooklyn's Brighton Beach. Neuman had been a boxer in Russia but was not allowed to fight in the Olympics because he is Jewish. Now, he finds work as a dishwasher and drinks heavily–until he meets amateur boxers Timmy Boyle (Adrian Pasdar) and Roland Jenkins (Wesley Snipes). He offers to coach them and trains them to fight in the Olympics where they could fight the Russian team that had rejected Neuman years ago.
