Quan has been fighting for the Communist cause in North Vietnam for a decade. Filled with idealism and hope when he first left his village, he now spends his days and nights dodging stray bullets and bombs, foraging scraps of food to feed himself and his men, and seeking comfort in childhood memories. Given the chance to return to his home, Quan undertakes a physical and mental journey that brings him face to face with figures from his past-- and ultimately to the shattering reality that his innocence has been irretrievably lost in the wake of the war.
