To carefree, naive, young soldier Terry Edwards, life's an adventure. But how easy is it to cope with the extreme fear in intense emotions that come with war in Vietnam, when you know that life balances on the accuracy of a bullet to meet its target? Sometimes, taking chances is ...the only way to stay alive.
For combat photographer Frankie Proctor, every young soldier in Vietnam has a story to tell. The problem is, can she tell it before the war claims them? Or her? Days are filled with bloodshed and death. Sometimes the only way to cope is to grab any opportunity you can to celebrate that you're still alive.
Destined to belong to a brotherhood of men who live in the shadows of Nam, Terry finds himself fighting a war he never saw coming. As Vietnam eats away at him from the inside, can he outrun the shadow? Can Frankie?
