A summary of the film without giving it all away!
12 February 2000 | by (cape coral florida) – See all my reviews

this is a film about two very stubborn people who fall in love with one another in the 1970's. Tony Kaiser and his girl friend maria move in together and begin planning their lives when he is suddenly drafted into the army during the Vietnam war. He serves 14 months and right before he is scheduled to go home he is wounded. He feels helpless and he does not call Maria because he does not want her to know what has happened to him. There are some moving scenes in the film and some scenes are sad. THis is a decent Tv film from the 1980's and is above average when it comes to tv movies of the week. Anderson is very good in the role of Tony Kaiser but Maria, played by val bertinelli(?) is a bit annoying but she kind of grows on you.
