Psychedelic Six is the story of Sylvester Wright, an insecure and immature young man at the threshold between adolescence and adulthood. In an effort to gain the approval of his tough and demanding father, and the respect of his bullying peers, Sly joins the Army and volunteers for combat duty during the Vietnam War. Upon his arrival in the war torn country, he meets Tan, a Vietnamese man who had recently defected from the Viet Cong. Tan befriends Sly and the two men join Green Platoon of Alpha Company, located in the marshy heart of the Mekong Delta. Sylvester, Tan and Green Platoon battle against the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese Army, and over time they are changed drastically. Green Platoon is transformed from a group of pot smoking drunks into a crack combat unit that the enemy comes to fear and respect. Sly develops into a confident, mature leader of men who learns much about bravery, life and love from his Vietnam experience. Sylvester also comes to love the country and its people in general and one beautiful, young Vietnamese woman in particular. Over time, he resolves his internal struggle concerning his father's approval and his peer's respect. The unique climax finds Sylvester, Tan and Green Platoon fighting to survive a terrible, two-day battle against a totally unexpected enemy that outnumbers them ten to one.
