As a testament to her physical and mental toughness, O'Neill is chosen to participate in the grueling training program. However, she quickly discovers that she is not only battling her own limitations, but also the prejudices of the men who are part of the program and those who oppose the idea of women in combat roles.

Throughout the film, O'Neill proves herself to be a capable and determined soldier, refusing to quit despite the intense physical and mental challenges she faces. She also becomes embroiled in a political battle as the Navy is pressured to drop its gender integration policy.
