of my eldest brother James Austin McDowell who died in Saigon, Vietnam in 1972 when I was 5 and he was 24. I am the youngest of six children and my oldest brother Jim was 19 years older than me. He had served his duty in the army and had returned to VN as a civilian journalist and died unexpectedly and mysteriously a year after he returned there.

My family did very little research at the time about his life and death in Vietnam. For this film I am interviewing every close friend he had (nearly all of whom are still alive) and I have retraced his steps in Vietnam. I have about 50 hours of interviews and am currently raising money now via Fractured Atlas towards remaining production, post-production, and completion of the film in 2019.
