Overview
The acclaimed performances of two-time Academy Award® winner Michael Caine (Best Supporting Actor: The Cider House Rules, 1999; Hannah And Her Sisters, 1986) and Brendan Fraser (The Mummy, Gods And Monsters) power a stylish political thriller where love and war collide in Southeast Asia! Set in early 1950s Vietnam-a young American (Fraser) becomes entangled in a dangerous love triangle when he falls for the beautiful mistress of a British journalist (Caine). As war is waged around them, these three only sink deeper into a world of drugs, passion and betrayal where nothing is as it seems!
