In June 1944, a young Army private is stationed in Normandy, France, and ordered to drive superiors as they scout for the enemy in a series of hedgerows. As the Americans find themselves increasingly trapped by the Nazis in the unyielding environment, the private's defiance of orders combined with his uncanny knack for survival allows him and his fellow soldiers to persevere.
After defying orders, a cook for the Army is assigned to run scout missions in France to detect the presence of Nazis. However, it doesn’t take him long to realize that these are impossible orders, as the soldiers are left in an all-too-vulnerable state when going on these missions, and he defies his commanders to save his fellow soldiers’ lives.
A cook in the 1940s military finds himself acting as a scout for soldiers in Normandy, and he questions his command when he realizes that misled orders are resulting in the routine deaths of those he has been assigned to escort.
