- Synopsis / Plot
- Two very different perspectives on the USA: through the eyes of a Vietnam veteran and from the point of view of a young American woman. Ex-Recon Marine Paul is obsessed with protecting the Land of the Free. He was shot down at the age of eighteen. The events of 9/11 made the ghosts of his past return. Lana has lived in Africa and Europe for the last 10 years. She’s an idealist; she finds her Christian faith in striking opposition to positions taken by the present administration. Paul has no friends and has cut all ties with his family. His reclusive existence as a self-declared homeland security officer collapses when Lana enters into it. She is his forgotten niece, and her uncle the only connection to her mother’s family. Paul grudgingly accepts her presence. But when they witness the apparently random shooting of a homeless Middle-Eastern man, they decide to investigate together.
