The movie shows fictional events that take place during the Soviet-Afghan War. In the movie, Rambo goes on a risky mission to Afghanistan to save his former commander and best friend, Col. Sam Trautman, from a very strong Soviet Army colonel. The colonel wants to kill both Trautman and Rambo. At the same time, Rambo helps a group of Afghan rebels who are fighting against the Soviet forces. The Soviet forces are a threat to the rebels' village, and Rambo wants to stop them from destroying it.
