A Buffalo's Revenge
A Buffalo's Revenge, a Vietnam negative, explores the limits of a nation engaged in a struggle for freedom when the mirror reveals a fractured image. Racism is bundled in an interlocking grid of white and black and oriental hatred. The backdrop of the home front, the plague of assassinations, a spiraling anti-war movement, a sandwiched Media, and politicians and a military caught in the glare of appeasing conflicting demands underscores the plight of individuals fighting for their lives and their loves. Doc Lusane must overcome his need to die; James Jaggers his need to kill; Pee Wee Anson to hate.
The home front explodes in a frenzy of hate and violence.
The boys discover love beyond the peculiar cadence of language and dialect. They discover life beyond race or color. They discover themselves.
America was at war thirty-five years ago and we are at war today. A Buffalo's Revenge is a snapshot of America, then and now.
