The Americans went to distant countries.

To fight for freedom.

The South Vietnamese people

to shape their own destiny.

We do not want the fight expands with

consequences no one can overlook.

We will not oppress them, or

incite or abuse our power.

But we will not surrender.

And we do not pull back.

Saturday, at 7.00 pm, there

will be a truce in effect.

A peace agreement and peace

in Vietnam to restore...

was signed by Dr. Henry

Kissinger in the United States...

Toe and Doc Lee of the Democratic

Republic of the Vietnamese.

The first step toward peace

is ending the war.

All parties must now work

towards a lasting peace.

Let's proud of the 2.5 million Americans

who fought in the war.



Keep applying pressure.

I was down there...

- This will not help.

Let me go.

Put your hand on it and hold tight.

Take it easy.

Come on, let's go.


- What?

Where is it?

It's 15:
15, where's the car?

- You're on TV.

You are in the news. All your men.

- I know, but where's the car?

I have to cancel. There is an agent

involved. You understand anyway.

We need it now.

- You are in the news, what do you expect?

I take care of it.

- What is done is done.

There is an airstrip

I need 24 hours.

- Make it 12.

I'll see what I can do.

Write this down.

- Hold on.

Via highway 48 you go

from Roger City.

Take Highway 115 east.

To the south you see a runway.

If you see water,

you're too far.

Give me the blame.

I did my best.

Okay, how much?

- 320.

- You are now shooting at police?

Do you look like? 320.

Very well.

Stay away from hotels.

Find shelter.

What happened?

- You do not know.

What happens?

- The plans have changed.

What do you mean?

- What happens now?

We keep a low profile. We have a plane. Which

starts tomorrow at eight hours from Rogers.


Should we act as a target?

No, we go. We keep our heads down

until tomorrow. We find a safe place.

Wait for it to calm down.

Tomorrow we get the plane,

and we can go home.

With 3.2 million and change.

Come on.

What do you think?

Do it.

This is a dump.

It makes me think of your

apartment, Tommy.

Here, to ease the pain.

Tastes like home.

What is this? Vietnam?

- Another war, the Americans lost.

In the second world war they were in the hills.

- At least we know when to go.

The only time we did not follow the

plan, was when we were betrayed.

Tell me something I do not know.

Try to get a better deal than 10%.

- Come on, you know how it works.

It is what it is.

They do not change for us.

But you can try to negotiate.

- The contract was concluded.

Would you stay in this hole?

Or do you want your freedom?

If you want your freedom,

you pay the price.

And the price is 10%.

I thought you quit.

It is empty.

There was none since 1970.

It's not perfect, but

we do not get better.

I love the smell of money. If

this is the last thing I smell...

I am happy.

- 320,000 Minus to get away.

Is not it too much?

With all due respect, I think we have

given everything to accomplish this.

Look at me.

You fell two agents.

Be glad you're still breathing.

The cop took his gun.

What should I do?

You shot him down first.

Come on, Mitch.

- Shut up!

You do not understand. Because

of you we're in the sh*t.

Thanks to you looking at us half

Michigan, and they keep looking.

Murder, theft, everything.

You've sent us around the world.

Cut his throat, take his part and we are going.

- We're not going anywhere.

I would now have to murder.

You really wanted

to cut my throat?

Try it.

Thanks to me you are not dead now.
