War is hell, but the aftermath can be almost as bad. Director Timothy Lihn Bui presents several poignant stories as seen through the eyes of South Vietnamese refugees corralled through the Camp Pendleton induction center after the Vietnam War. Patrick Swayze stars in this drama as a sergeant in charge of the refugees, and Forest Whitaker portrays a veteran who tries to make a connection with a young boy.
