It’s America in the 1960s and Harold Ryan, the famous war-hero, has been missing for eight years. Presumed dead, he returns in secret to discover his house is not exactly as he left it. His hunting trophies still adorn the walls, but there is an inexplicable birthday cake on the table. Worse yet, his son has grown into a sissy and his wife is engaged to a hippy.
