Based on the 1991 Warner Brothers film, Dogfight takes audiences on a heartbreaking and romantic theatrical journey. On November 21, 1963, a group of young marines set out for one final boy's night of debauchery and fun before they ship off to Vietnam. They decide to place a cruel bet they call a “dogfight". One of the young men taking part is Eddie Birdlace, who meets idealistic waitress Rose, and invites her to their party. When she rewrites the rules of the game, Corp. Birdlace learns the power of compassion.
