During the Vietnam war, a girl is taken from her village by five American soldiers. Four of the soldiers rape her, but the fifth refuses. The young girl is killed. The fifth soldier is determined that justice will be done. The film is more about the realities of war, rather than this single event. Written by

When the soldiers enter the first village, kids are eating a Hershey bar wrapped in foil with a brown Hershey sleeve. For that time period it should have been a white wax paper wrapper inside the Hershey sleeve. See more »

Although I was supposed to join the ranks of soldiers who went to kill or be killed in Vietnam, I was able to slide out of it. Years later this movie was released and whenever I saw it, something inside of me stirred and eventually those stirrings compelled me to travel to Vietnam which I did for the first time in 1999. I was so moved by some of what I saw there and what I experienced that I wound up making 7 round trip flights from West Palm Beach Fla, to Saigon Vietnam and ultimately moved to Vietnam on a full time basis in 2000 and stayed for a couple of years. Had it not been for Michael J Fox and this movie providing that stirring inside my guts, I may have never gone and unanswered questions about Vietnam and the Vietnamese people may have never been answered. I thank everyone involved in this heart wrenching movie for that.
