Discharged from Vietnam, John Lithgow and his army buddies have trouble fitting into a hostile home-front society. Rather than endure dirty looks and taunts of "baby killer," Lithgow and his friends wander aimlessly all through the Pacific Northwest. Several years pass, during which time Lithgow's estranged son Ralph Maccio grows to manhood. Finally emerging from his self-imposed exile, Lithgow begins searching for the son he's never known.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Cliched film about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, but with surprisingly strong performances by Lithgow and Macchio."
‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com
"Lithgow's raw performance helps to counteract the run-of-the-mill plot."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
