Flying Into The Storm

Jared Christopher's transition into adulthood was defined by youthful indecision. He follows his childhood friends to college. Then, halfway through first semester, he begins to acknowledge the futility of the path he has chosen. Jared decides to withdraw from college and volunteer for the draft. A year later, the young infantry soldier is thrown boots first into an escalating Vietnam War. The glory of going off to war turns out not to be so glorious after all. It's 1968, the year of the Tet and Jared finds himself in a place called Quang Ngai. Just a young private fresh out of training, Jared is suddenly in the heat of combat; following orders and taking lives. Meanwhile, he develops a compassion and need to understand the plight of the ordinary Vietnamese citizen. He seeks purpose where there seems to be none and quickly develops instincts that help him to survive while sustaining his most basic human principles. Not your typical war story, Flying Into The Storm, carries you along and encourages you to see, feel and share a young soldier's journey into both war and manhood.
