This dramatic movie focuses on the challenges faced by returning Vietnam veteran Joseph Megessey, known to his buddies as Megs. Megs suffers from post-traumatic stress syndrome and has a very difficult time readjusting to civilian life after the war. He takes another veteran under his wing, an alcoholic named Dave, in an effort to help the both of them.

Complications develop when Megs finds himself being drawn toward Martha, the shy sister of Dave who lives with him and serves as his primary caretaker. But Dave is jealous of the time that Megs spends with Martha and pressures him to give up the budding romance. When Martha gets the opportunity to chaperone a local high school dance, Dave and Megs attend the event with her, allowing tensions and unsettled emotions to erupt all around and forcing Dave to face the real reason he wants to destroy the romance between his sister and his best friend.
