Set in 1975 during the final days of the American occupation of Saigon, is an incredible love story between an American GI and a young Vietnamese woman. Orphaned by war, 17 year old Kim is forced to work in a seedy night-club in Saigon, owned by a disreputable wheeler-dealer known as ‘The Engineer’. An American GI, John, pays for his friend Chris to have the services of Kim for the night. That night will forever alter their lives.
