Why do we regard so many wars as "forgotten wars"? What consequences do we face when we deny these wars the cultural and academic attention they deserve? This film engages in these questions, using the Korean War as a primary case study. Featuring important insight from several notable interviewees-- including Korea veteran James Butcher and Oliver Stone collaborator Peter Kuznick-- this film outlines why the Korean War has escaped our national imagination, and why there is so much we fail to understand in full-- from the Vietnam era to the ever-perilous state in modern Korea-- by allowing that to happen.
