Storyline

Set in Iran after the fall of the Shah. All American businesses pull out and among them is Ross Perot's EDS systems. Two of his employees Paul Chiapparone and Bill Gaylord are detained. The Iranians then demand millions for their release. When it seems apparent that the Iranians are not going to release them, some of Perot's people offers to go there and get them. They ask Perot for someone to teach them what to do and Perot asks retired Army Colonel Arthur "Bull" Simons if he can help them. Simons then tries to teach a bunch of executives to be soldiers. They all go into Iran and try to find a way to get them out. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com
