Harrowing drama set in the final days of the Vietnam war, based on the award-winning novel by Robert Stone. Nick Nolte stars as Ray Hicks, a jaded Vietnam veteran who, having come to the end of his stint, agrees to smuggle two kilos of heroin into the United States for equally disillusioned journalist John Converse (Michael Moriarty). When Hicks arrives at the journalist's home to collect his payment, events spiral out of control - and a catalogue of errors leads to Ray and Converse's bewildered wife, Marge (Tuesday Weld), going on the run from the henchmen of drugs baron Antheil (Anthony Zerbe).
