Director Statement
As a veteran of the Iraq War, I considered it an honor to tell Buck Southworth’s story of service in Vietnam and subsequent love affair with Pricilla. Buck’s experience with Agent Orange and the cancer that took his life is poignantly but touchingly narrated by Pricilla, his wife and now widower. She is a beautiful person, and I consider her a friend (one of the many benefits of documentary filmmaking).
