NotesA unit of the National Guard is training in the Lousiana swamps. To reach their destination they decide to 'borrow' canoes belonging to Cajuns who live and work in the swamps. Half way across the 'river' they see the Cajuns and one of the guardsman fires off his machine gun at them. The Cajuns who don't realise these are only blank rounds return the fire and kill the leader of the guardsmen. The unit's mission is then to find the killers and exact revenge. But they get lost. There are the usual confrontations among this disparate bunch and enough incidents to keep the film moving but it wears thin as the Cajuns gradually kill one after the other. The unit captures one of the Cajun who probably wasn't involved in the killing of their leader. He has only one arm which leads to the dialogue: "How do you tie up a man with one arm"
