Key to understanding this seminal experience: Why as a child of privilege he felt the need to go to the Vietnam War and fight on the rivers of the Mekong Delta and why upon his return home as a veteran he felt compelled to protest against the senselessness of the war and commit himself to end it. "Going Upriver" takes you into the heart of John Kerry's Vietnam War against the background of his personal life. Through in-depth interviews and rarely seen archival photographs and footage, "Going Upriver" recreates an era, a war and the potential President shaped by these events. A timeless (yet still timely) depiction of the nature of war and the quintessential dilemma: what is a soldier's duty and when and what makes a soldier turn and say: I won't do it anymore?
