A murder mystery centered around a love triangle set against the French Indochina War in Vietnam, circa 1952. This is the true story of a veteran English journalist (Caine), a young American (Fraser) and the beautiful Vietnamese woman caught between them. This is a world where nothing is what it seems -- suffused with opium, intrigue and betrayal.
