Al and Birdy became friends in high school despite their different personalities. Al is a popular and athletic extrovert and Birdy is a antisocial introvert obsessed with birds and flight. Al and Birdy have just returned from a tour in Vietnam. Al sustained injuries that required facial reconstructive surgery. Birdy scars are emotional and after being MIA for a month, he hasn't spoken a word and appears comatose. Al travels to the institution where Birdy is being held to see if he can help. But he has issues with authority and he doesn't want to reveal Birdy's pre-war mental condition. So, can he help?
