The idea for the project is based on real events: the story of a Los Angeles policeman, Brian Wil, a former marine who fought in Vietnam once.
The series tells the story of a Los Angeles policeman who takes a teaching job teaching young recruits in Micronesia. But he did not know that, setting off, it would seem, for peaceful work, he would be drawn into a bloody war between the local mafia, lawless mercenaries and dishonest agents of the CIA.

Actors and roles
It is known that the main role will be played by the star of "Anatomy of Passion" Patrick Dempsey, a two-time nominee for the Golden Globe. At a young age, he received an invitation to audition for the stage production of Torch Song Trilogy, which led to the discovery of Patrick Dempsey as an actor. The audition went just fine, and Patrick toured with the rest of the Philadelphia project for the next four months. Dempsey also played a significant role in the production of "On the Golden Pond", and also played the role of Timmy (the role of Martin Sheen) in the 1990 remake of The Subject Was Roses with John Mahoney and Dana Ivey in the lead roles of Roundabout Theater Company in New York.
