Anna is an American journalist whose husband as a soldier disappears at the Vietnam War. At the request of the chief executive officer, she sets out on a mission to the war zone, hoping to, both, find a clue of her husband and deliver reports to her employer..
She receives a letter from her husband’s friend while in the same military base where her husband served. Before reading the letter, along with a detachment of soldiers she heads to a village already occupied by the American soldiers.
once there, Anna films the crime scenes but, after a while, sickened by the sight, she manages to make her way into the woods around. The Commander then gets a group of soldiers chasing her in order to take the camera from her.
She is determined to, first, keep the tapes off the wrong hands and, second, lay all the perpetrators bare to world eyes.
On her way out of their reach, she ponders the mission’s real intentions and whether what their looking to achieve is the freedom they intended in the first place.
When escaped, she opens the letter she received from her husband’s friend in the base. From the letter, she learns that Jack’s been murdered by the commander she saw ordering the soldiers to catch her. Her husband’s death, as she reads on, was for not having the heart to kill the innocent Vietnamese people.
She keeps running away, heading to the heart of Jungle, getting past and jumping over plenty of barriers, logs, trees, and bushes. She then goes on to run into the ruins of an ancient temple, where she overlooks the vicious soldiers taking the treasure left from the indigenous ancestors inside the temple to smuggle them out to the US. She later out sees a variety of crimes including setting fire to the woods and slaughtering the innocent.
As she takes the way ahead, she comes across an already flatted village with its residents dead. In the village, she spots a little boy. As she runs to the boy, a helicopter hovers over the village. She hands the camera to the boy, asking him to show her the way but right after she gives the camera, gets shot dead.
The commander, who killed her husband, gets out of the helicopter to her body, rummaging around for the camera but the boy, has been long gone. The last scene is now from bird's-eye view of the village, looking over the dead bodies scattered around with the cottages burnt from bottom up.
