A brilliant-but-unhappy concert pianist, Robert Dupea (Jack Nicholson) has given up music to work as an oil rigger in California. Informed by his sister that their father has had two strokes, Dupea heads home to Seattle, accompanied by his pregnant girlfriend, Rayette (Karen Black). Leaving her at a motel, Dupea visits the family homestead, only to fall for his brother's fiancee, Catherine (Susan Anspach). After a brief affair, an angry and alienated Dupea leaves with Rayette, only to abandon her at a gas station, as he hitches a ride to Alaska to begin a new life. Nominated for four 1970 Oscars, including Best Picture and Actor.
