A sort of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3 meets PLATOON, NIGHTWARS concerns Trent Matthews (Brian O'Connor) and Jim Lowry (Cameron Smith), Vietnam vets who suffer from nightmares that propel them back into the jungle. Racked with guilt for having left a buddy behind, the duo relive the horror

machine-gun fire kills Trent's wife, however, the shrink finally takes heed.
