Winkler plays a Vietnam vet who sets about finding the men from his unit. Field plays his girlfriend and Ford plays one of the guys in his unit, now a stock car driver in Sedalia, Missouri who keeps a stolen machine gun in his motor home. This was the first film released after the conflict ended in 1975 to address Vietnam War issues.
At the bus station, he accidentally meets Carol Bell (Field), a woman unsure of her engagement and imminent marriage to a man she has confused feelings towards. They set off on a trip to middle America: she traveling to think things over, he to locate his three old war buddies and involve them in his scheme to raise worms.
