Red Dawn envisions the nightmare scenario... without warning, foreign troops begin a full-scale military invasion of your country.
As the military assault begins and their families are taken away to labor camps, brothers Jake (Chris Hemsworth) and Matt (Josh Peck) manage to escape to the mountains with six friends. Hiding from patrols and armed only with hunting rifles, pistols, bows and arrows, the teens struggle to survive the bitter winter.
They decide the time has come to make a stand and The Wolverines are born. Fighting back guerrilla style, The Wolverines take the war to the invading forces. They must fight to turn the tide and hope that tomorrow doesn't bring another red dawn.
