Chronicles the last year of Dr. Tom Dooley's life. A vibrant, committed, politically savvy charismatic man who brought attention to the plight of the vietnamese and other indo-chinese people in the late 1950s. His death at age 31 was a national shocker. He was awarded the Congressional medal of freedom posthumously. He has written several books documenting his experiences from about 1955-1961.
