Based on true events, this drama chronicles the attempts of Gene (Ned Beatty) and Peg Mullen (Carol Burnett), an Iowa couple whose son Michael (Dennis Erdman) has been killed by American "friendly fire" in Vietnam, to hunt down the details of his death.

    I was around eight years old when this movie was on tv and I drove my grandma crazy watching it she was a good sport and watched it with me every time the weekend after she died my mom and I watched it together for the first time which I thought was kind of weird but it is a real good movie.
