John Rambo joins up with a team of mercenaries in thailand in order to save a group of Christian missionaries. A group of Christian aid workers contacts Rambo to aid them in their travels up the Salween River so that they can deliver vital medical supplies to Karen tribe. The Karen tribe resides in the neighboring Burma, so it doesn't seem to be a very difficult trip, but as the weeks pass and the missionaries don't return Rambo is once again called upon for help. The missionaries' group leaders believe that he is the only person who could bring back their people safe and sound. He joins a group of mercenaries and travels with them through the war-torn region to find the lost missionaries. Rambo must learn to go through the ravaged jungle and fight off soldiers and wildlife in order to save the Christian missionaries that are counting on him.
