A handful of emotionally-scarred Vietnam vets hide out in Washington's rain forest, living as if the fighting might erupt at any time. Discharged from duty in Vietnam, troubled veteran mark Lambert (John Lithgow) drops out of society, wandering aimlessly through remote terrain of the Pacific Northwest. During that time, his estranged son Jack (Ralph Macchio, The Karate Kid) grows to manhood. After years of leading separate lives, father and son are destined for a stormy yet poignant reunion.
Their uneasy reunion accidentally sparks war-haunted violence - and father and son share a harrowing fight for survival that will either destroy them or unify them forever.
