In 1971, at a fraternity house on the University of Texas campus in Austin, Texas, Gardner Barnes is throwing darts at a picture of himself and his ex-girlfriend Debbie. He rejoins the graduation party going on downstairs, but not before tearing the picture in half. Gardner is a member of a clique called the Groovers, whose other members include Kenneth Waggener, engaged to be married, and ROTC geek Phil Hicks. Phil’s parents arrive at the fraternity house just in time to see another Groover named Lester pass out (and remain unconscious for most of the film). They also meet the strong, quiet seminary student Dorman.

Kenneth interrupts the festivities by announcing his student deferment has expired and he is now to be drafted into the Vietnam War. Gardner is not surprised: his own notice came weeks before. Kenneth also reveals he has decided to call off his engagement to Debbie on account of being drafted. Gardner reacts with some joy and relief. The Groovers decide to celebrate their last days before the draft by going on a road trip, intending to visit a notorious roadhouse, then “dig up” someone – or something – named Dom near the Rio Grande. They drive all night before making a rest stop. Some, including Phil, resist continuing, but Gardner presses them on.
