Product Description:

A troubled Vietnam vet pays a visit to an old war buddy. Finding his buddy in a depressed drunken state, with only his sister for company, the vet works toward freeing the buddy from his past and provides the sister with the tender love she has never known.

Plot Synopsis:

Joseph "Megs" Megessey lives a circumscribed life in a small Connecticut town, where he still agonizes over the death of his buddy in Vietnam. On the spur of the moment, he decided to visit Dave, another Vet who has not recovered from the war and help restore the man's life. But Meggs' attempts seem doomed to failure, especially when a romance between Megs and Dave's sister leads to a violent destructive outburst.
