Vietnam vet John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) is passing through the small town of Hope, Washington. His unkempt appearance has him ejected from the town by the local Sheriff (Brian Dennehy).

Which in turn brings up traumatic memories in Rambo and makes his rely on the special skills he picked up as a Green Beret.
