Robert Dupea (Jack Nicholson) works with his friend Elton as an oilrigger in California, and spends his free time bowling and drinking beer. When his witless girlfriend Rayette (Karen Black) announces that she is pregnant, Robert meets up with his concert pianist sister (Lois Smith), who tells him that their father does not have long to live. Rayette sees Robert in a new light when he reveals that he, too, is a classical pianist, and accompanies him when he decides to return to his family home in Washington. However, things don't go particularly smoothly once in Washington when Robert falls for another woman (Susan Anspach), who is the complete opposite of Rayette.
