"Red Dawn" Plot Summary.

In this lively (and paranoid) adventure set in the mid-1980s, the US stands alone, abandoned by its allies. The USSR and Cuba start selective bombing, then invade the US and quickly capture the central part of the country. A band of teenagers escape to the mountains and become a group of tough guerrillas who launch a series of surprise attacks on the murderous and nasty Red invaders.
