As the German 11th Panzer 'ghost' division masses on the small town of Nenning, Germany in World War II, battle-weary Sgt. Don Smith and his outmatched platoon of exhausted GIs make one final stand. They're outmanned and outgunned, but the American forces realize that without their help, the town of Nenning will be obliterated. As they fight through the ice and snow, Sgt. Smith and his men are forced to look inside themselves to find courage they didn't know they possessed in one of the most brutal fights of the Battle of the Bulge.
