An aging Vietnam War veteran seeks closure by making reparations to those in his past, even as he deals with a perplexing present and a tenuous future. Through his utterly honest, irascible, humorous and sometimes controversial hero, he helps us all confront a piece of ourselves. Will history repeat? Reason has already been optioned as a movie.
