Vietnam war-themed drama follows former US combatants back to the country. Over 1800 US armed forces members remain unaccounted for after the end of hostilities in Vietnam. A government official (Ally Sheedy) who long ago lost her father in the war is charged with tracking them down. One veteran, Ray (Bobby Hosea), is contacted by an unnamed source saying he should return to the country and, since he left a lover and child there, he returns. There, he is disappointed in the welcome from his former family and is accosted by a stranger, (Michael Ironside) who holds him at gunpoint. The stranger turns out to be a former platoon-mate with an axe to grind. Sheedy and her team are investigating the stranger's activities and listen in to the strange tale that unfolds in Doc's hotel room.
