Storyline

During the chaotic final weeks of the Vietnam War, the North Vietnamese Army closes in on Saigon as the panicked South Vietnamese people desperately attempt to escape. On the ground, American soldiers and diplomats confront the same moral quandary: whether to obey White House orders to evacuate U.S. citizens only--or to risk treason and save the lives of as many South Vietnamese citizens as they can.

Heart Wrenching
1 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

I was in college when the events of this documentary took place, and only remembered that there was a sort of scramble to do the final evacuations (memories mostly coming from the iconic photo on the roof, along with photos of people swarming the US Embassy). This film tells the whole story, and I sat in the interview really amazed at the way the story was told. It brought tears to my eyes in several parts. It is a reminder also of how the military of the USA was at a very low point in public opinion due to the Vietnam war, and the general feeling of the American public was that we were "done" over there and no more money ought to be spent on any sort of military activity. For that reason this film is a very important piece of military and political history. Very highly recommended.
