The Korean War was at its best incredibly ugly. The staff of the M. A.S. H. 4077 unit are all looking for a way to survive the war and return home to their lives all in one piece. One way of doing that is through humor. Hawkeye Pierce (Donald Sutherland) has a fierce wit and a great sense of humor to go along with his amazing abilities as a surgeon. He and his best friend, Trapper John (Elliott Gould) are always finding ways of keeping themselves and others amused while the war constantly finds its way into the cocoon of protection they are attempting to weave. Caring about their patients also leads them down a dreary path as they realize no matter how many times they patch them up, they will just be returned to the front for another chance to die. Can their humor see them through this tough situation?
