Vietnam veteran Ray Hicks gets conned into helping his buddy John Converse smuggle some heroin, only to wind up on the lam with John's wife when the deal goes sour.
When Ray goes to see Eddie ( Charles Haid ), the song "American Pie" by Don McLean is playing. That song was released in November of 1971, narrowing the time frame of this film.
What's life without a dream?
The story takes place in 1971, but the whole-year calendar poster in Ray's cabin on the ship is for 1976 (same as 1971 after February 29th).
