Abstract:

"The story of a Korean war veteran on a quest to save his younger sister"

Frank is an angry, broken veteran of the Korean War who, after traumatic experiences on the front lines, finds himself back in racist America with more than just physical scars. He is shocked out of his apathy by the need to rescue his medically abused younger sister and taker her back to the small Georgia town them come from and that he's hated all his life.
