young woman seeks out her reclusive, cynical uncle to
learn about her father who died in Vietnam.
"In Country" is both an
exploration of post-war syndrome and a coming-of-age
film. Emmett Smith, a Vietnam Veteran cannot free
himself of the nightmare he lived overseas; he lives
with his niece, Samantha Hughes a recent high-school
graduate, in a rundown old shack in the hills of
Emmett's emotional scars run so deep
that neither he nor his veteran buddies can escape from
the past. As a result, he allows Samantha to lead a
rather reckless life.
She too is touched by the war: her father was killed
before she was born and her mother has built a new and
separate life for herself. Samantha's progression into
adulthood begins as she learns the truth about her
parents' relationship and the atrocities her father may
have committed during the war.
