Editor's Note
In this final film of his Vietnam trilogy, Oliver Stone turns his cameras away from the experience of the American combatants to focus on the devastating effect of the war on the Vietnamese people. Starring Hiep Thi Le as Phung Le Ly, it recounts the epic journey of her life, which began in an idyllic village in Central Vietnam living as her people had lived for thousands of years. When the war broke out, she was plunged into a maelstom, trapped between the forces of North and South. Separated from her family, Le Ly was imprisoned by the South Vietnamese, who used an assortment of tactics on her, including electric shock treatment, and upon release from prison, she was raped by a vicious gang of Viet Cong. After escaping to Saigon, she becomes pregnant by an employer and is fired. She turns to prostitution to survive, until Steve Butler (Tommy Lee Jones), an American Special Forces officer, impulsively asks her to marry him and return to America with him. She agrees to marry him and moves with him to San Diego but finds that, after a life in the military, he has a more difficult time adapting to life in the U.S. than she does. HEAVEN AND EARTH is a profoundly moving saga of resiliency in the face of unspeakable suffering.

Plot Summary
The final chapter in Oliver Stone's acclaimed Vietnam trilogy, HEAVEN AND EARTH dramatizes the memoirs of Le Ly Hayslip (Hiep Thi Le), tracing her epic journey from innocent Vietnamese farm girl to guerrilla to prostitute to California housewife and nascent entrepreneur. Previously focused on the war's effect on Americans, whether civilians or combatants, Stone here takes stock of the incalculable damage done to the land of Vietnam and its people due to what is now recognized as a tragic error in judgment.
