Storyline

A television movie set in the Vietnamese jungle in 1963, black master sergeant Olly Winter is a career soldier sent to Vietnam as an advisor to fight one last war against the communists. Flashbacks reveal Winter's harsh childhood including the suicide of his mother. This helps him sympathize with the poor villagers he is trying to protect. Accompanied by a Vietnamese young girl, a dog, and an orphaned baby found near the bodies of its slain parents, Sergeant Winter is pursued and finally killed by the Viet Cong. One of the first TV programs to focus on the Vietnam War and the social injustice at home. Written by JLopez
