Synopsis

May 1970. Byron Shaw is set to graduate from Kent State and is on his way to Columbia Law School. His friend Dexter Johnson opts to stay in the National Guard. Byron's girlfriend, Eileen, and his younger sister, Christie, are also students at Kent State. When Dexter's Guard unit opens fire on student protestors, Dexter quits and moves to Los Angeles; Eileen and Christie move to New York. In L.A. Dexter falls in love with Yolanda, a community organizer. Byron leaves law school to work for the Committee to Re-elect Nixon in Washington, D.C. Eileen abandons her conservative politics in favor of the feminist movement. Christie's modeling career heats up, and she becomes involved with Nick, a fast-living record producer. When Dexter is seriously injured in a shooting, a disillusioned Byron leaves D.C. and moves to Alaska becoming involved in environmental issues. After Nick overdoses, Christie becomes involved in a cult. Fearing for her safety, Byron asks for Dexter's help to kidnap and deprogram her.
