In 1944, despite declining health, Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Jason Robards) decides to run for a fourth presidential term while World War II begins to draw to a close. This account of his final year follows the president's involvement in D-Day planning and his meetings with Joseph Stalin (Nehemiah Persoff) and Winston Churchill (Wensley Pithey). His relationship with his wife, Eleanor (Eileen Heckart), is also explored, as well as his alleged liaison with Lucy Rutherfurd (Kim Hunter).
In early 1970s San Francisco, blind aspiring singer-songwriter Don Baker (Edward Albert) is living away from his overprotective mother (Eileen Heckart) for the first time. Free-spirited actress Jill Tanner (Goldie Hawn) moves into the apartment next door, and they bond over music and literature, but when Don's mother makes an unexpected visit, she clashes with the headstrong Jill, assuming that she'll get bored and leave Don, just as his last girlfriend did.
