    A small boy speaking an unknown language is abandoned by his father at an international airport, with only the clothes on his back and a handful of money jammed in the pocket of his coat. In order to understand this heartbreaking and indefensible decision, the story must return to the moment, decades earlier, when Vollie Frade, almost on a whim, enlists in the US Marine Corps to fight in Vietnam. Breaking definitively from his rural Iowan parents, Vollie puts in motion an unimaginable chain of events that sees him go to work for insidious people with intentions he cannot yet grasp.
