In 1968, two best friends flew into a war zone wearing powder blue dresses. They were Red Cross Donut Dollies, and their mission was to cheer up battle-worn GIs on the frontlines of the Vietnam War. 46 years later, they reunite in Vietnam and share their stories for the first time.

In English and Vietnamese with English subtitles.
