Summary
In 1952, Saigon is caught between the corrupt colonial powers and the Communist uprising. An idealistic young American champions a Third Force, but cynical British journalist Thomas Fowler is concerned only with the American's interest in his mistress. When jealousy forces Fowler to take sides at last, the personal and political consequences are devastating
