Tagline: Three buddies in Vietnam. Two survived. Only one is really alive.

Plot: Joseph "Megs" Megessey lives a circumscribed life in a small Connecticut town, where he still agonizes over the death of his buddy in Vietnam. On the spur of the moment, he decided to visit Dave, another Vet who has not recovered from the war and help restore the man's life. But Meggs' attempts seem doomed to failure, especially when a romance between Megs and Dave's sister leads to a violent destructive outburst.
