Here's how it's billed: "Dogfight, based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, tells the story of 3 Marines in 1963 who, on the eve of their deployment to Vietnam, look forward to their last evening of fun and debauchery. A romantic and heartbreaking story, Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party. Rewriting the rules of the game, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion."
