Plot[edit]

Sally Field stars as Denise "Dennie" Miller, a young woman who returns to her parents' suburban home after a year of living with hippies. Lane Bradbury plays her younger sister Susie, who also is following in her footsteps, wanting the idealistic hippie life but making some rash decisions in the process. David Carradine plays Dennie's boyfriend, and he comes back to try to win her back. Linda Ronstadt is heard on several of the songs used in the film. At the end of the film, Susie runs away from home as Dennie had earlier in the film.[1][2][3]
