In flashbacks, the wartime relationship starts off when Kline mistakenly almost kills Mr. Kim, who ends up in a demeaning job in the American’s infantry division where he suffers racial prejudice. On army assignment in Seoul, Julian falls in love with Soon, daughter of an aristocratic Korean family, and later goes AWOL to be with her. He voluntarily returns to a pointless battle to help endangered Mr. Kim. Both wounded, they heroically protect each other and survive. Julian, recovering from his serious wounds, is maneuvered by his mother and fiancée to abandon Soon and Mr. Kim to return to the U.S. Contemporarily, his reunions with Mr. Kim and Soon, are fraught with obstacles, but warm, emotional and spectacularly revealing.
