Description Adapted by Terence O'Connell from award-winning writer Siobhan McHugh's book, "Minefield and Miniskirts" brings to life a collage of true stories from the women who played a part in the Vietnam War. When their paths cross on Anzac Day in the 1980's, a helicopter hovers over them, transporting the women back to Vietnam with memories of rice paddies and richly coloured paper lanterns, orphaned children and the terror of constant bombardment.
