Plot – John Miller is focused on winning the “Great Race”, which won’t be easy because his opponents are helped by rich teams. Before winning, he becomes friend with Eva, an Icelander. John will be ran over by a drunken truck driver on New Year’s Eve. Terry Fields, called ‘Toad’, is sent to Vietnam. He tries to injure himself so that he can go back home. He gradually becomes friend with Lieutenant Sinclair and saves his life. He is also persecuted by the crazy major Creech and, right before deserting, he takes revenge on him and on a dumb politician. Debbie, Terry’s girlfriend, would like to marry Lance, for who she earns money dancing. Committed to hire Lance in the “Electric Hanze” group, she follows the weird Felix and Newt. She will end up becoming a singer. Laurie and Steve Bollander are a young married couple in crisis because she would like to work to help the family, but the proud husband opposes, so they separate. Later on, they casually end up in the middle of some pacific demonstrations and once they got arrested, Steve shows to be an enterprising revolutionary: he will free the arrested girl by taking possession of the bus where they are.
