Quan Loi is their staging-point for flight operations during the day and a disreputable haven for hardcore, drug-altered malcontents during the long hours of darkness. When Newbies arrive at Quan Loi, the inevitable friendships and animosities become amplified by exhausting hours of combat flying, followed by immoderate revelry, into a bizarre distortion of military life, where unlikely friendships, inconsolable grief, and surprising heroism are stirred into a unique and unexpected brew.
