It is 1971. New Zealand soldiers are heading off to Vietnam amidst hordes of peace protesters and the heady excitement of a solar eclipse.
In a column of soldiers stopped to board a military truck, Geoff (KEVIN SMITH) catches sight of Bunnie (DANIELLE CORMACK),
a beautiful hippy whose glorious, intimate smile is the lasting vision he takes with him to war.
Destiny brings the pair together a second time, when Geoff returns from Vietnam a few months later. Each has been badly hurt in different ways, but in spite of their personal damage, they fall instantly and passionately in love.
