In October 1966 a group of 28 soldiers was chosen to form Australia's first specialist Reconnaissance Platoon in the Vietnam War. One of this platoon's section commanders was a 20-year-old regular soldier called Bob Kearney, who led a series of deadly patrols in South Vietnam.

Operating in isolation and extreme danger ahead of the main Australian forces, these young men braved regular enemy contacts, mines, booby trips, and the natural perils of the teeming jungle. This is the story of Bob and his unit - a tale of courage, terror, madness and survival.

Like most veterans, the war didn't end for Bob and his fellow soldiers when their tour of duty was done: it haunted them night and day for decades. The lifelong bond forged between these men in Vietnam sees them reunite 30 years later in the silent vastness of the Australian Outback. Reliving the fears, the desperation and the camaraderie of war, they finally lay their crippling ghosts to rest.
