Two brother, raised on a dairy farm by their hard-working parents, become confused and disillusioned by the sudden disappearance of their father.As the small familys circumstances decline, the boys lives are made more miserable by an abusive, drunken stepfather, a sadistic teacher and a school bully who graduates into an underworld thug.Forced to grow up quickly, the boys find themselves thrust into a world of violence, pay-back and intrigue.Against the background of the Vietnam war, Harry the oldest brother, a pacifist, is faced with some terrible moral dilemmas about his involvement in this unpopular war when conscripted against his wishes.A riveting climax brings all the issues together in a cacophony of violence, retribution and heartbreak, but most important of all, hope for the future.
