What's "Red Dawn" about?

So glad you asked! Have a look at the movie's synopsis, and a quote from the screenplay.

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.

They hung him, Jed. They killed Daddy, Jed. They hung him up! I saw it!
