Synopsis

In March 1967, Billy Bang was conscripted to fight in Vietnam, an experience that left him emotionally desolate and profoundly confused about his American identity. Upon his return, he tried to forget his nightmares through alcohol, drugs and music. Forty years later, he decides that the only way he will be able to repair his emotions and find some closure to his trauma, is to return to Vietnam, this time with his violin. This film is about the desire to overcome and transcend the trauma of war through music and art.
