Presaging the upcoming Vietnam War without knowing it, this routine drama directed by Jack Warner, Jr. (his only directorial effort) is set in Vietnam where the recent battles with the French have concluded and two soldiers have remained in the country to set up their own plantation. Their lives are changed when two Americans are captured by communist forces. Unless the ex-soldiers do something about it, the Americans may just have to stay captured, or worse.
