In 1967, near the height of the War there is a place of deadly fighting, and curious rumors. It was known as the Quế Sơn Valley. These rumors and missing Marines are being investigated by undercover agents embedded with Bravo Company.
On a patrol, a map of hidden treasure is taken off a dead enemy Tax Collector. On another patrol, an unsigned American letter is found on a dead Viet Cong.
