Storyline

China Beach, July 1969. Times have changed at China Beach where Boonie forgoes his beach party lifestyle for drugs and anti-war slogans, while Beckett entertains Sweet Hula, the lead singer of a USO show, while Sarge Pepper sets up a party for Lila and the other soldiers who are eagerly waiting the landing on the moon. Meanwhile, McMurphy tries to reason with a wounded GI, named Everett, who's afraid to go back into the jungle after he recovers, while resenting a new nurse, named Glory Dawn, that attracts Dr. Richard's attention. But everyone's plans come to a halt when Boonie's leg is trapped under an overturned jeep and a rising flood during a sudden rainstorm threatens to drown him, in which Dr. Richard makes a fateful decision to amputate Boonie's right leg to free him.
