From out of the sky, Soviet, Nicaraguan, and Cuban troops begin landing on the football field of a Colorado high school. In seconds, the paratroopers have attacked the school and sent a group of teenagers fleeing into the mountains. Armed only with hunting rifles, pistols, and bows and arrows, the teens struggle to survive the bitter winter and the Soviet KGB patrols hunting for them. Eventually, trouble arises when they kill a group of Soviet soldiers on patrol in the highlands. Soon they will wage their own guerrilla warfare against the invading Soviet troops-under the banner of 'Wolverines!' Written by
In our time, no foreign army has ever occupied American soil. Until now.

Right after the invasion, a dead man lies behind his truck in pool of blood, with two empty shell casings from his Colt 1911A1. When the Russian paratrooper picks up the pistol, the hammer is in the fired position, and the slide is locked forward. If he'd fired the pistol, the hammer would be locked back, ready to fire, or the slide would be locked back, denoting that the pistol is empty. It's possible that the primer failed to ignite when the gun was fired, which would explain the dropped hammer and engaged slide. See more
