[ Story ]

Documentary dealing with the scars left behind by Agent Orange, which was used during the Vietnam War. Director Sakata Masako has continued her filming of people in Vietnam and the U.S. who were victims of Agent Orange, and her previous work Agent Orange - a personal requiem won a special prize at the Paris International Environmental Film Festival. Agent Orange was used by the U.S. Army to gain an edge on the battlefield, and at the time it was believed to have no impact on the human body. However, the harm inflicted continues even thirty-five years after the war's end. Heather is the daughter of a war veteran, and she visits Vietnam, the battlefield where her father fought.
