Oliver Stone's Oscar-winning film Platoon brought the true horror of the Vietnam War to the big screen. Based on Stone's own experiences as a soldier in the conflict, the film captivated millions of viewers all over the world. But how much of the film was real and how much was Hollywood fiction? To reveal the real story, scenes are recreated; a radio transmission from the battle that inspired the movie's climax is uncovered, and Oliver Stone and cast member Willem Dafoe are interviewed.
