Disabled Vietnam War vet Lloyd Dubeck can't find work after returning home. With nothing for him in the States. he returns to Saigon in search of his Vietnamese mistress, and half breed child they had together. He searches the streets and orphanages, with no clue to there whereabouts, other then that his child has green eyes. Along his journey, he befriends a young orphaned street hustler named Trung, who unintentionally guides Lloyd down a road of self discovery and redemption for America's part in the war that contributed to the devastation and poverty now befallen Saigon, forcing Lloyd to finally confront his personal demons, including the final outcome of where fate brought his mistress and child after abandoning them years back.

This film won the George Peobody Award
18 February 2007 | by margi_rossSee all my reviews

Truly this is a 'heart-warming' film. It won the George Peobody Award, winning over "Roots", so that may tell you something of the essence of this film. I am looking on the Internet how to order this movie since my former father-in-law, Eugene Logan, the co-writer of this film has been deceased for a few years now so I no longer have the opportunity to receive information from him. I would love to have his only grand-daughters, my daughters, see this film, as well as to pass this wonderful story on to his great-grandsons. My oldest daughter was seven years old at the time it was aired on television and I since have been looking forward to seeing it again. One of my friends said it was her favorite movie. I won't 'spoil' this movie for you.
