2 hr. 26 min.
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. When the U.S. government evades their direct questions, the Mullens spend years searching for the facts, and, as they gradually piece together events, they grow increasingly embittered toward the war that robbed them of their boy.
Director: David Greene
