Faced with that situation, the 559th Transport Group Command issued an order to urgently recruit a number of young female volunteers (mainly on supporting duty) to train to become truck drivers for the battlefield. The first female driver platoon was born with the route operating mainly in the West Truong Son. The film's story revolves around 4 characters Chau, Han, Sa, Thuong, who are very young girls, assigned to drive trucks to transport goods, food, necessities from the rear to the front lines and carry wound and sacrificed soldiers from the battlefields to the rear.
