M*A*S*H tells the story of the doctors and nurses who work in the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital in Uijeongbu, South Korea, during the Korean War. They're all just getting through each day and on to the next. The causalities never stop coming; they can't save every wounded soul they find. And the army's micromanaging and red tape is unbearable. So, in their off time, they drink, carouse, and play pranks to create a feeling of normalcy in that crazy war zone.
