VICTORY TRAIN tells the story of a group of draftees serving in an army entertainment unit in Georgia in 1968, during the Vietnam War. The Show and its GI director Rick have aroused the enmity of the Colonel, who is looking for an excuse to shut down what he considers to be an ill-conceived outfit of misfits and shirkers. Rick meets Julie, who is a member of a radical anti-war group responsible for increasingly violent protests. Julie is repelled by the gung-ho message Rick and the Show are putting out, but she can’t ignore her increasing attraction to him. She urges him to use the platform of the Show to advocate for a fairer social contract and an end to an illegitimate and cruel war. Rick resists… until the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr changes the conversation, once again.NYMF Pass - The best way to see the Fest.
