During the chaotic final weeks of the Vietnam War, the North Vietnamese
Army closes in on Saigon as the panicked South Vietnamese people
desperately attempt to escape. On the ground, American soldiers and
diplomats confront the same moral quandary: whether to obey White House
orders to evacuate U.S. citizens only—or to risk punishment and save the
lives of as many South Vietnamese citizens as they can.

The events recounted in the film mainly center on the US evacuation of
Saigon codenamed Operation Frequent Wind. Join a discussion following the
film including antiwar protester Duncan McFarland, and Alfred Johnson, who
spent over a year in an Army stockade for refusing orders to Vietnam.
