Army brass want to shut down the 332nd squadron under the command of Colonel AJ Bullard (Terrence Howard) and Major Emmanuel Stance (Cuba Gooding Jr).
Thankfully, Colonel Jack Tomilson (Lee Tergesen) is not so narrow-minded and he throws his support behind the African American airmen, who are based out of Ramitelli Airfield in Italy in 1944.
As the conflict escalates, the Tuskegee Airmen are gifted a daring mission to provide cover for an Allied beach landing.
They take to the skies to prove their worth.
Meanwhile, Joe’s Italian sweetheart Sofia (Daniela Ruah) nervously awaits her lover’s return.
