An intense soldier named Colonel Samuel Trautman is a Vietnam veteran who's been hired to assist Mujahedeen rebels in Afghanistan. He goes to a formerly known soldier to ask for help, John Rambo. But Rambo turns him down because of his Buddhist beliefs. This turns out to be a bad mistake when Trautman's mission fails horribly and he's captured and tortured by the Soviets that the rebels were fighting. Rambo is forced to lead a rescue mission and ally himself with the rebels despite his earlier hesitance in order to save his former commander.
