The lives of two sisters, military brats during the anti-war Vietnam era, and their orphaned bi-racial cousin, are followed from the 1950s, through the tumultuous 60s, to April 30, 1975, the day of the Fall of Saigon. These times of great political and cultural rupture are backdrop for the stories of personal chaos.
