Decent Vietnam-era drama. Aimless pretty boy Douglas just wants to play guitar and find his bliss. Pops Warden wants him to choose a major and stay out of the draft. Douglas hooks up with a foxy, no-BS nurse (played by Brenda Vaccaro), who steers him more toward a path. Unfortunately, that path turns out to be the war.
