When a long-forgotten Vietnamese soldier appears unexpectedly in 2018, he shakes the comfortable lives of Vietnam War veteran Pablo and his wife, Adriana. As they revisit and reconstruct wartime events, they realize the heavy toll of past actions on their souls. Fifty years after the war, they are forced to ask themselves: can you ever make peace with evil done in the name of good?
