A young soldier learns the power of compassion when he plays a cruel joke on an unsuspecting girl.
It's November 21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to a small but growing conflict in Southeast Asia, three young Marines set out for one final boys' night of debauchery, partying, and maybe a little trouble. But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress whom he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of love and compassion.
The hauntingly beautiful music and story was praised by countless critics and nominated for numerous awards. Studded with impressive songs, an unexpected love affair and a genuine and charming soul, DOGFIGHT will take you on an awkwardly romantic, albeit, sometimes heartbreaking, theatrical journey that will stay with you long after you leave Genesius.
