Vietnam, 1968. A feared American colonel nicknamed “the Black Dragon” by Vietnamese locals must face his inner shadow when his platoon presents him with a captured Vietcong girl who harbors some very unusual powers. A Jungian psychological thriller/parable examining the capacity for monstrous evil lurking within us all, the film is loosely inspired by the My Lai Massacre, one of America’s most pernicious wartime atrocities. Hailing from the producer of “Cabin Fever”, the film stars Matthew Del Negro (Scandal, The Sopranos, West Wing, City on a Hill, Wind River) and Celia Au (Lodge 49, Nora From Queens, Wu Assassins).
