Tracks is a 1977 American drama film written and directed by Henry Jaglom. The film stars Dennis Hopper, Taryn Power and Dean Stockwell. The story involves a returned Vietnam veteran escorting a fellow soldier's coffin across the United States for burial.


1st Sgt. Jack Falen (Hopper) returns from the Vietnam War to the United States to escort a friend's body for a hometown burial. Once in the US, Jack travels across the country via train (hence the film's title), where he meets the mysterious Mark (Stockwell) and alluring university student Stephanie (Power). During the trip, Jack falls in love with Stephanie, but destroys the relationship through constant flashbacks to combat.
