Synopsis

Ben, an old Vietnam veteran and a handyman, lives in a California trailer park surrounded by ground that is polluted by toxic waste. Despite thirty years having passed since the war ended, he is still haunted by the war. His old war buddy, Jeeter, who is a bit of a hippy, comes for his usual summer visit. Jeeter went to Ben's father's funeral, which Ben did not attend. Jeeter also brings with him his new girlfriend whose mother, Lorraine, also shows up. Joined by Jeeter's new girlfriend and her off-the-grid whiskey-drinking mother, these friends gather at Ben's remote trailer for one final hurrah.The result is an examining of identities and of memories of the past, especially of the Vietnam War.
