Timothy Lawson is a highly decorated Vietnam veteran who returns home with high expectations for a new lease on life. His physical wounds have healed, but coming from the jungles of Vietnam to the crime and drugs on the streets of his bustling city make for a difficult transition. Remnants of the war remain in Tim’s head, his dreams, and his emotions, and he experiences disappointment, tragedy, and trouble with the law. However, a smart young lawyer and a benevolent judge provide this young man a path to redemption-and a second chance.
