Twenty years after the war is over, a middle-aged draft dodger from Toronto who has just lost his wife, finds him-self depressed and still haunted by the ghosts of war that he had seen only through the TV screen. In an effort to face the reality he missed, and to discover what really happened to his American high school buddy, who was killed in Viet Nam, he goes to post-war Viet Nam. There, while digging deeper into the past, he must come to grips with the moral dilemmas raised by the horrifying massacre of all of the inhabitants of a small village named Bien Lai, by his finding romance and his discovery of what this exotic Asian country is really all about.
