During the 1960s, David Wakefield is a distance runner for his high school's track and field team who hopes to compete in college.

His sister Cathy's boyfriend, Dean Berger, is a former track star who tries to advise David, telling him to be more patient during races and hold back, rather than exhausting himself by going too fast too soon. David is influenced by others in school, like friend Paul Morelli, and reassesses his life after Dean goes off to the Vietnam War and is killed.
