As the world enters a new era of peace, what becomes of professional soldiers, who have spent their lives preparing for war?
On a frozen stretch of Russian border, two veteran military men, American Colonel Jack Knowles (ROY SCHEIDER) and Russian Colonel N. A. Valachev (JÜRGEN PROCHNOW), command small outposts. Knowles has a reputation for being a loose cannon. His commanding officer (HARRY DEAN STANTON) hopes the quiet post will keep Knowles out of trouble.
But trouble starts when Knowles sees Russian border guards gun down a defector and confronts Valachev for the first time. From that moment—when Knowles hurls a snowball at the enemy he’s forbidden to fight—the two men begin a battle of their own.
Trading “invasions” into enemy territory, Knowles and Valachev strike at one another. When a beautiful refugee becomes involved, the two men use her like a pawn in a deadly game. Finally, their personal vendetta threatens to escalate into a full-scale military confrontation. The world may not survive THE FOURTH WAR.
