The film is the second in Sidney J. Furie's Vietnam War trilogy along with 1977's The Boys in Company C and 2006's The Veteran.

Synopsis

25 years since the Vietnam War ended, a group of American veterans return to Vietnam and meet up with TV journalist Kathleen Martin (played by Carre Otis), who is assigned to cover the reunion of the men from Echo Company. Soon, they are joined by their old Captain named Ramsey (played by Casper Van Dien), and they revisit the old battlefields they fought in and experience flashbacks of their time in the war during 1968. The film explores many of the wounds war inflicts on soldiers that last for a lifetime. It also portrays the Vietnamese today as a very forgiving people.
