With the Vietnam War raging in 1969, two young fathers report for duty. A man of great faith and a doubtful cynic. A quarter-century later, their sons, Wayne and John Paul, meet as strangers. Guided by letters handwritten from their fathers from the battlefield, they embark on an unforgettable journey to The Wall - the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. Along the way, they discover the devastation of war cannot beat the love of a father for his son.
Drama Action - Contrary to what the advertising leads one to believe, this
Christian-themed film is not mostly a Vietnam War-set piece, but
mostly a much lighter modern-set road comedy/drama with war-set
flashbacks. Also, top-billed Stephen Baldwin, the most known face
in the cast, is not the lead but only has a small supporting role.
There is no objectionable language, and the violence is bloodless,
but some war combat scenes may be intense for young kids.
PROFANITY: None. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Fights and shootings with no visible blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Fleeting alcohol. ACTION: Some war combat and explosions. COMEDY: Silly banter, wisecracks, physical gags; nothing off-color.
