Charlie Sheen narrates and Paul Sanchez directs what he calls a love letter to the actors experience making Platoon. The non-union, low budget, independent film cast with young, unknown actors, went on to win four Academy Awards and changed the way we view the Vietnam War. Defying Hollywood convention, the actors trained in extreme circumstances: they slept in holes, endured nightly raids, and ate military rations in the unforgiving jungle of the Philippines, under the ‘take no prisoners’ technique of their director, Oliver Stone. The cast tell their war stories from the audition and real military boot camp, all the way through winning the Academy Award. After three decades, the iconic film and the brotherhood they forged remain.
