Their hearts and minds torn by fear, pain and grief, two young American officers in Vietnam have lost faith in themselves, their families, their country and their God. When they meet in Penang in a brief respite from the Mekong Delta, they learn what every soldier comes to know: In war, the only thing that truly matters is the guy next to you. But is this truth enough to save them?
