Last Days in Vietnam
During the chaotic final days of the Vietnam War, as the fall of Siagon nears, only a skeleton crew of U.S. diplomats and military operatives remain in the country. As Communist victory becomes inevitable and the U.S. readies to withdraw, some Americans begin to consider the certain imprisonment and possible death of their South Vietnamese allies, co-workers, and friends. With the clock ticking and the city under fire, a number of heroic Americans take matters into their own hands, engaging in unsanctioned and often makeshft operations in a desperate effort to save as many South Vietnamese lives as possible.
