in this film based on a true story, Leonard Matlovich (Brad Dourif) is a decorated Vietnam veteran who faces a court-martial from the U.S. Air Force after his admission of homosexuality. Convinced he is taking a stand for civil rights, Matlovich intentionally reveals his homosexuality to challenge the rules that forbid openly gay men from serving in the military. When the Air Force attempts to oust Matlovich with a discharge, he fights the case in court, citing his perfect military record.
