As children, Donald Branch Booth (Timothy Hutton), his sister (Lauren Peterson) and his brother (Paul Regina) are abandoned by their parents and sent to live in foster homes. All three are sent to different homes, and they become estranged from one another. Now, as a young man, Donald wants to find his brother and sister. An obstacle course of bureaucratic red tape stands in his way, but Donald is helped by Lillian (Brenda Vaccaro), a sympathetic social worker.
Bunker Hill Military Academy has been targeted by real estate developers for demolition. The students, outraged at the thought of their school being turned into condominiums, vow to fight back. Led by Cadet Maj. Brian Moreland (Timothy Hutton), they stage a school-wide rebellion that ends with them in charge of the campus. After winning over the headmaster (George C. Scott), Brian and his fellow cadets, Alex (Sean Penn) and David (Tom Cruise), face their toughest battle yet -- with the Army.
