Two rebellious youths, Ralph (Robert Downey Jr.) and Scott (Kiefer Sutherland), find themselves struggling with adulthood as the Vietnam War rages. Feeling trapped in their small town, Scott battles with his conservative veteran father, Cliff (Bruce Dern), and Ralph deals with his desperately sexual mother, Ev (Joanna Cassidy).
