Overview


Looking for adventure, young freelance journalist Adam Berg finds himself in Saigon during the Vietnam War. Unsure if he wants to keep covering the carnage, he temporarily deserts his profession and joins up with a discharged American Air Force sergeant to deal drugs and pimp. Befriended by a Vietnamese police inspector who does not care about the war and wants only to solve crimes, especially the recent brutal murders of Vietnamese prostitutes, Berg is enlisted to help capture the American drug lord, whom the detective believes is the killer. Against a background of a Saigon we rarely see, the young journalist falls deeply in love with a beautiful Vietnamese prostitute, who is also tragically murdered. To overcome his grief, the young journalist is drawn into the world of the opium den. But as he experiences love and loss, the journalist destroys the drug lord in a sudden, brutal act of revenge.
