It also considers Fondas early life and the effect it had on her behavior and beliefs in her later years, her audience of American POWS who were forced by the Vietnamese to listen to her broadcasts condemning them as war criminals, her arrival in Vietnam and how it was viewed by American servicemen and civilians, the crime of treason throughout history, and the only Congressional inquiry into her actions, which resulted in the governments decision to take no legal action against her.
