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.

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.He hungered to know more. The more Frank thought about Darrel and Vietnam, the more withdrawn and solitary he became. Instead of going out with his students or colleagues to socialize, he started to stay home and drink by himself.
