Synopsis

Alienated from his family and friends, Kent, a West Coast student, drops out of college and takes to the road in his sports car. While driving along the Big Sur coastline, he thinks about his hometown girl friend Bobbi's dependence on his love, his college roommate's acceptance of establishment rules, and his parents' failure to understand the problems of youth. At one point Kent had tried to explain to Bobbi why he felt that he could not assume responsibility for her, but the lonely girl's feeling of rejection had driven her to suicide. The recollection of Bobbi's tragedy causes Kent to lose control of his car, and he crashes over an embankment. He hitchhikes aimlessly until he is picked up by Kristine, a free-lance reporter who conducts campus interviews. After covering a peace demonstration, they spend the night together, but Kent leaves when he realizes that she also has needs that he is unwilling to fulfill. Finally, Kent wanders into a carnival, where he meets Julie, an independent young woman who gets him a job and allows him to move into her apartment. For a time Kent is happy, but soon he feels the need to move on. When Julie asks to go with him and is refused, she rebukes Kent for his selfishness and lack of purpose. Although he leaves again, Julie's words have reached him, and he sets off determined to make his life meaningful.
