It's 4 years since Jack is back from Vietnam, but he still has nightmares. In a bus on his way to California he meets Carol, who just left her fiancée - only 4 days before their wedding, allegedly just for a few days of vacation. Jack happily tells her about his plans to set up a worm farm for fishing baits together with four of his Vietnam ex-comrades. Although he gets on her nerves at the beginning, she starts to care. When one after the other of his friends steps out and Jack looses his optimism, Carol remains as the last support that keeps him from despair. Written by

To see that someone else has had the same memories for as long as I have about a particular movie, really makes me smile.I have tried for years and years to tell folks about this movie and no one seems to remember it. Heck, I even remember who I went with and the day of the week. The song had a profound affect on me as well and I can't hear Kansas's Carry on Wayward Son without thinking of the movie.. it so touched me!Thanks for being a great site and for helping me put together some memories that were turning into tiny pieces. And now, I'm going to go out and rent the movie just so I can watch Harrison Ford, I can't for the life of me remember his role...
