“Mr. Coyote always gets me good, boy,”  Ellery said, winking.  “Almost forgot what life was like before I got me my own personal coyote.”

Plot Summary:
A második világháború végén járunk, amikor a német hadvezetés még egyszer megkísérli, hogy föltartóztassa az el?retör? szovjet csapatokat. Öt magyar katona - egy ?rmester és négy közlegény, - már csak a túlélésben reménykedik, mint a magyar katonák zöme. Szerencsés körülmények között egy pecséthez jutnak, amellyel nyílt parancsot hamisíthatnak, s annak segítségével kis falvakban próbálják átvészelni a háborút.
A lapítás iskolája azonban csak addig semleges módszer, míg föl nem bukkan az els? döntési helyzet. H?seink - egy gyanakvó, ravasz bíró kérésére - rendfenntartó feladatot vállalnak, s jelent?s szerepük lesz két fogoly tragikus halálában. A túlf?tött történelmi pillanatokban rosszul m?ködnek a reflexek, és vagy egy - az égb?l váratlanül lecsapodó - repül?gép, vagy egy sorsával megbékélni nem tudó ember utolsó er?feszítése fordítja visszájára az eseményeket.

From Wikipedia:
"Of Mice and Men has been cinematized several times, the first in 1939, only two years after the initial publication of the novel. This adaptation of Of Mice and Men starred Lon Chaney Jr. as Lennie, Burgess Meredith as George, and was directed by Lewis Milestone.  It was nominated for four Oscars.  In 1981 it was made into a TV movie. This version starred Randy Quaid as Lennie, Robert Blake as George, Ted Neeley as Curley, and was directed by Reza Badiyi.
The most recent film version of Of Mice and Men (1992) was directed by Gary Sinise, who was nominated for the Palme d'Or at Cannes.  In addition to directing, Sinise also played the role of George opposite John Malkovich. For this adaptation, both men reprized
[sic] their roles from a 1980 Steppenwolf Theatre Company production."
