It’s 1975, and Saigon has fallen. He lost his wife. She lost her fiancé. But now, in a new land of Harleys, hot dogs, and Howdy! they just might find each other.
This unconventional twist on the classic boy-meets-girl story takes audiences on a hilariously rip-roaring adventure across 1970s America with a hot soundtrack that serves up hip-hop, sass and comic-book snapshots.
