Jarhead Synopsis

\"Jarhead\" (the self-imposed moniker of the Marines) follows Swoff, a third-generation enlistee, from a sobering stint in boot camp to active duty, sporting a sniper\'s rifle and a hundred-pound rucksack on his back through Middle East deserts with no cover from intolerable heat or from Iraqi soldiers, always potentially just over the next horizon. Swoff and his fellow Marines sustain themselves with sardonic humanity and wicked comedy on blazing desert fields in a country they don\'t understand against an enemy they can\'t see for a cause they don\'t fully fathom.

Rated for pervasive language, some violent images and strong sexual content
