The Hero is a war drama centered around Matt Green, a World War I pilot and balloon buster. The balloons are heavily protected by enemy planes in the air and anti-aircraft guns on the ground, making this a very dangerous mission that no other pilot wants to undertake.
Matt is eager to prove himself and taking out balloons appears to be the way to do it. He pushes himself harder than anyone else to become a master balloon buster. Unsatisfied with his commander’s conservative way of thinking, he tries new ways to take out the balloons as the Germans adapt to his methods, which include both dawn and night attacks.
He succeeds in becoming the Ace of Aces, taking down more enemy aircraft than any other pilot. After losing his best buddy and wing man, he continues his mission, while teaching other pilots his tricks. He no longer cares if he is a star – he sees that with his new-found hero status there are responsibilities also.
Although his plane is hit on one last mission, he dies a hero. He has learned what being a hero really means.
