Ho Chi Minh goes to Paris for the big sit down with the new French government. But right from the start, things do not go as planned. Meanwhile, the United States are doing their best to ignore the situation. And Ho finally gives in and admits publicly that this is going to end up in a war and tells the story of the tiger and the elephant. Meanwhile, back in Vietnam, Giap is consolidating Viet Minh power. And a religious mystic is assassinated.
