Gunnery Sergeant Burns (Dryer) is sent to the Middle East, where he acts as a guard at the local US Embassy. However, due to the pacific nature of the ambassador, the marine corps detachment is severely limited in their ability to protect the base, thus allowing terrorists to take over and take everyone hostage except Burns. Now Burns must act as an army of one to defeat the terrorists and save the Americans.
