John Paul Vann (Bill Paxton) is sent to Vietnam in 1962 as a military adviser and quickly learns that several South Vietnamese battalions are forging low casualty numbers and successful battle records. Vann, along with journalist Steven Burnett (Donal Logue), tries to take the matter public and in the process destroys his career and reputation. His private life also takes a hit when his wife (Amy Madigan) learns of his numerous affairs, including one with a Vietnamese teacher (Vivian Wu).
