A tragic and inspiring documentary about transcending war, The Friendship Village tells the story of George Mizo, an American veteran who returned to Vietnam to create a reconciliation project to treat children with Agent Orange-related deformities. The award-winning film follows Mizo's transformation from war hero to peace activist after a key battle of the war in which his entire platoon was killed. His lifelong journey to heal the wounds of war ultimately led him to befriend the very Vietnamese General responsible for planning and leading the fateful assault on his platoon at Que Son. Their friendship and collaboration on the Vietnam Friendship Village Project underscores the ultimately inspiring message of the film.
