The war in Vietnam, here filmed from the perspective of the people suffering from the conflict, is the subject of this documentary. Adults and children live and die, and the young are indoctrinated to refer to Americans as "pirates." An American serviceman is captured and paraded through a small village before being sent to Hanoi. The everyday lives of the Vietnamese and their struggles to survive are illustrated without propaganda, allowing the events and the camera to tell their stories. A complex labyrinth of underground tunnels contains homes, hospitals and hiding places from the barrage of bombs and gunfire.
