In an army hospital, a black winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor and a psychiatrist, both guilty survivors of Viet Nam, verbally spar until the doctor draws out the horror and disgust that has traumatized D.J. His barriers crumbling, D.J. turns on the psychiatrist and exposes the man behind the professional facade. Yet D.J. desperately hopes and the psychiatrist believes he can be helped. Before another interview takes place, D.J. goes AWOL to get money for unpaid bills and the unthinkable happens.
