Tough U.S. Marine Sergeant Joe Enders (Nicolas Cage) is assigned the special mission of accompanying a Navaho "code talker" into battle during World War II. Code talkers were trained to relay highly sensitive information in their native tongue, and Enders has orders to "protect the code at all cost"–an order that includes killing the code talker to prevent him from falling into enemy hands.
