Join a tough, streetwise Brooklyn kid on his journey from the nightmare of drug addiction, through the vivid horror of Vietnam, to his sudden spiritual awakening

A tumultuous tale of the 1960s told with simplicity, innocence and a haunting realism you will long remember

Eighteen years old, hooked on drugs, his buddy recently dead from an overdose, Eric Karlson joins the Army hoping to kick his habit.

Two months later, he finds himself stationed in Vietnam, smuggling heroin and opium from villagers to GIs on his base. After witnessing incredible brutalities by some American forces towards innocent peasants, something snaps inside Eric. He throws down his M-16 rifle and goes AWOL. Villagers hide and protect him as he learns their simple ways of compassion. A prostitute in Hue falls in love with him, and a Vietnamese nurse befriends him.

Eric discovers an inner voice telling him to resist the strident U.S. military presence. He convinces some GIs to go AWOL and join him, but others try to murder him. The resisters are hunted by the Military Police, but are mysteriously protected. At Eric's greatest time of need, an angelic Being of Light reveals itself to him.

Guided by a higher presence, Eric's efforts to persuade other GIs to join the resistance effort lead us to a stunning conclusion, one which offers a remarkable vision and hope for the future.
