Severin Boxx is the son of an Air Force pilot and lives on an Air Force base in Japan. The year is 1989. Severin is a muscular, earnest 17 year-old who plays on the base's football team. He loves--from afar--Virginia Kindwall, the daughter of the general who runs the base. Virginia, whose Japanese mother died in childbirth while her father served in Vietnam, is tough and sophisticated beyond her years. She has fallen in with the Japanese underground and her dealings result in her disappearance and Severin's forced return to the United States.
