An Australian love/war story set during the last few weeks of Australia's part in the Vietnam War. More
It is late in 1971 in Vietnam and the Australian Army's contribution to the war is nearly over. Mark Ross, a transport company driver, is given the seemingly innocuous assignment of delivering two female personnel, one a local, the other a young American, to their respective destinations in and around Saigon. Ross is looking forward to unloading his passengers and enjoying some unexpected R and R in the big city. But when the exigencies of war, and some of the political intrigue behind it all, intrude to change his plans, Ross's easy-going attitude receives a serious jolt. The experience takes a toll and as well as that, he must come to terms with his feelings for his new American friend and the circumstances of their sudden if inevitable parting.
