Set in the turbulent 1960s, A War Apart tells the tale of two lovers that are forever changed by the Vietnam War that tore them apart. While traveling to London, Eric Williams meets Sarah Wellington and the two fall instantly in love. After a brief courtship, Eric asks Sarah to return to Annapolis, Maryland to begin a new life. When the two return to America, Eric is notified that he has been drafted into the Army. Similar to thousands of citizens like him, Eric is forced to leave the love of his life to fight in the jungles of Vietnam. Now Eric must survive the nightmares of war in order to return from the war that tore them apart. Like the country, the two lovers would never be the same.
