Major Michael Hyland is a Marine on his way to Saigon to serve as a trainer for the Vietnamese Special Forces in the art of covert warfare, which he had learned and experienced in Korea when his platoon was overran, and he was skilled enough to bring them all back to the American lines.
He had cut his leave short after a breakup with the woman he loved and intended to marry once back from Vietnam, when she insisted that he resign his position in the Service, which he refused to do.
While at the hotel bar in Honolulu, where he had intended to spend the remainder of his leave before continuing on to Vietnam, Michael meets and quickly befriends David, a physician from Los Angeles who is gay and extremely skilled in seducing attractive men.
Despite being straight, Michael feels quite vulnerable at that moment and accepts David's invitation to his room to imbibe in expensive cognac and smoke a Havana cigar, two of his favorite vices. While in David's room, Michael discovers a third vice that had been buried deep in mind, the wish to be made love to by another man.
They spend the next four days in unrestrained lovemaking and sexual explorations, not only together but with a group of other gay men that were to meet David and engage in prolific sex with one another away from their environment and the fear of discovery.
Once in Saigon, David finds another gay lover. It's his housekeeper, who teaches him the pleasing art of cross dressing, which he loves and practices almost daily.
He meets David and his gay cabal again three months later, and realizes that they had both fallen in love with one another and looked for a way that would enable them to keep their relationship on a permanent basis.
Their great desire to remain together becomes a reality when, on his return to the US, Michael's plane crashes but he survives and takes on a new identity since his body was considered burnt beyond recognition in the conflagration.
David and Michael are finally reunited and begin a new life together after a few unexpected twists and turns of fate.
