Saga of two Puerto Rican soldiers in Vietnam
4 May 2000 | by (Miami & Sao Paulo, BR) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent docu-drama about "heroes' fighting for and from "another homeland" (the USA and Vietnam). Though they are technically Americans, they are viewed even by "Americans" as Puerto Ricans. The film tells the story of these two soldiers whose destinies cross in Vietnam for very different reasons. Their life experiences, family situations, and life in war are intertwined in this excellent drama.
