Jake Robbins (Kris Kristofferson) went off to Vietnam, leaving his wife (JoBeth Williams) behind to mourn when he is reported missing and presumed dead. Seventeen years later, he unexpectedly returns. Having been a prisoner of war, Jake was rescued and ended up in Cambodia where he had a family. Jake's reappearance is a godsend for his father Harry (Brian Keith), but a mixed blessing for wife Sarah, who has moved on with her life. While old feelings stir in her, Jake confronts the military on how his disappearance was handled, and, more importantly, on how to track down his missing Southeast Asian wife (Kieu Chinh) and child.

“When the husband you buried 17 years ago shows up on your doorstep, how do you introduce him to the offspring he never knew...and to the man who's taken his place?”
