Two boys, Ralph and Scott, hitchhike home from college, arriving on Easter morning and shout their greetings across the glen to their families during a lakeside Easter Sunrise service, much to the amusement of Ralph’s younger sister, Beth, and mother, Ev, and embarrassment of Scott’s mother, Jessie, and father, Cliff. Later that day, they drive Scott’s older brother, Alden, who is shipping off to Vietnam, to the bus depot; Alden pushes Scott when Scott says that his Marine brother is afraid to go to Vietnam. They begin fighting until their father arrives wondering what is going on.

A few weeks later, Scott and Ralph again return home from college to attend Beth’s high school graduation, where they learn that Ralph has flunked out of college (thus making him eligible to be drafted). Ralph and Scott decide to spend the summer on the road, living out of their van and experiencing all the freedom that the counterculture has to offer. Eventually, they arrive back at their hometown in the middle of its summer festival, where they learn that Alden has disappeared and is considered missing in action. Ralph and Scott hatch a plan to steal their files from the local draft board office, but they are caught, and Ralph is arrested. Scott is now determined to avoid Ralph’s fate and plans to leave town and head to Canada to avoid the draft. Scott invites Beth to travel in his van on his trip out of town and to stay away until the end of the war.
