Synopsis: Since Indochina, both France and the U.S. have been split down the middle between themselves and each other. These wars die hard. Retrace the fight as an American pilot and a French one define the emotional battleground between the spirit and the sword. In 1966, Brad Thomas flies a helo for COMSIXTHFLEET and exploits the joie de vivre on the Cote Azur with girlfriend Maggie. At the same time, France has the bomb and withdraws from NATO. Sixth Fleet flagship is without a homeport and sails to Tunisia in search of a new one. There, Brad meets an expatriate, Robert Dupont, and they become les compagnon amis. Robert is Brad's anvil, however, as he relives combat flights over Indochina and Algiers, he virtually foretells Brad's dubious future. Brad finds himself in a gunship over Vietnam. He meets a Vietnamese woman and falls in love. As disillusion for the war sets in, she becomes his touchstone with reality. When it comes to war's end, there's more at stake than winning or losing - the very soul of the nation is at risk. In repeat scenarios of Vietnam, Brad will come to know that when a nation splits, the prospects of its demise is imminent. As Brad and Ti-Ti try to put their lives back together, a quirk of fate soon changes everything for them.
