Adjustment to civilian life after participating in the Vietnam War does not prove easy for an old rancher's son. The boy (Michael Moriarty) returns to his father's ranch in the Pacific Northwest and brings along two of his war-time buddies to help out. One of them is a little slow on the uptake (William Devane), the other is a former sergeant who is a little too tightly sprung (Mitchell Ryan). After some initial conflicts, they seem to get along until the sergeant goes into flashback mode, believing he is back in Vietnam.
