Soldiers: The Desert Stand is a dark comedy playing on America's war department absurdities. 12-year-old Toma Singerson completes the last level of a combat video game and is instructed to head down to her local recruiting office. The overzealous Sergeant Bill quickly signs her up, along with destitute Martha Dixon and disobedient Harold Johnson. They all ship off to the desert. In the sand, Toma battles at every level leading up to a final showdown between herself and the leader of the Foolish Soldiers, Sally, who awaits her arrival.
