SYNOPSIS: Set during the turmoil of the Vietnam War, Jake, a twenty year old Army Ranger returns from the battlefield with a crippling spinal injury. At Walter Reed Hospital, his self-doubt and dread of his physical limitations are put into perspective by the veterans he meets and his courageous determination to live. His nurse has also returned from her tour of duty in Vietnam. The emotional scars from war have altered her return to the life she once had and the husband she thought she knew, she finds this patient can help her. While healing his life with spirit and humor, Jake has to evaluate his feelings about the war when he meets a 21 year-old student nurse who has made a commitment to serve in Vietnam. Her friends discourage her, citing their aversions to the War. These three lives intersect, generating new strength and hope to meet their life's challenges.---- BIO: Joe Cassilly was a U.S. Army Ranger in Viet Nam in 1970.
