This is the history left out of textbooks: the turbulent final days of the Vietnam War. With the clock ticking and the city of Saigon under fire, a number of heroic Americans took matters into their own hands, engaging in unsanctioned and often makeshift operations in a desperate effort to save as many South Vietnamese lives as possible. Renowned filmmaker Rory Kennedy (Ethel, Ghosts of Abu Ghraib) dares to reopen the books on a war that scarred the American psyche.Chronicling a story few of us know, this potent documentary will both shock you and restore your faith in humanity.
