Synopsis

Oscar-winning screenwriter and TV veteran, Stirling Silliphant, wrote and produced this ambitious pilot to a prospective series revolving around a combat cameraman in Vietnam. The film, one of TV's first to deal with Vietnam as a war zone, places Bruce Boxleitner in Saigon on assignment at the start of the 1968 Tet offensive, with Brian Dennehy playing his cynical boss, the local bureau chief. Tiana Alexandra (Mrs. Silliphant, who also was in his miniseries "Pearl") plays the cameraman's love interest, a Vietnamese doctor whose brother happens to be a leader in the Viet Cong and whose influential parents (Kieu Chinh and Keye Luke) are involved in high-level corruption.
