It is 1968, the end of Tet, the Chinese New Year.

Vietcong have shocked the world by ambushing American units across South Vietnam. Back home, the fires of anti-war protest rage.

Jim Quint, a reporter for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, goes to cover a luncheon speech by the U.S. commander, General William C. Westmoreland.

In the parking lot, Quint meets Vivienne, the beautiful young Vietnam wife of Colonol Del Lambert, scion of a wealthy Hawaii family and until recently Westmoreland’s chief of intelligence in Vietnam. When Quint learns that Lambert thinks him a coward and a traitor for writing about draft card burners and war protestors, but he invites Quint to have dinner at his home high above Honolulu.

But this dinner leads to higher stakes than good investigative reporting or inside information on the Vietnam war. This dangerous, passionate triangle of soldier, his beautiful wife, and a war critic is a story of bondage, longing, love, and tragedy.

Yet, through it all, hope.
