Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Steve is a devoted husband and regular officer in the U.S. Army. When his wife dies rather than have an abortion, he looses his faith. A dying friend on the Korean battlefield asks Steve to burn a candle for him. He reluctantly agrees, and only does so when he tries to rescue a woman in war-torn Vietnam from self-immolation, and thereby becomes the candle, and in so doing, restores his faith.
