When Bobby learns that his father is dying, he goes home to see him, taking along his waitress girlfriend. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards and five Golden Globe Awards, and, in 2000, was selected to be preserved by the Library of Congress in the National Film Registry. Bobby Dupea works in an oil field in Kern County, California with his friend Elton, who has a wife and a baby son. Elton, with whom he bowls, gets drunk, and has sex with other women.
Bobby has not told Elton that he is a former classical pianist who comes from a family of musicians. Rayette gets pregnant and Elton is arrested for having robbed a gas station. Bobby quits his job and goes to Los Angeles where his sister Partita, also a pianist, is making a recording. Partita tells him that their father, from whom Bobby is estranged, has suffered two strokes.
She urges Bobby to return to the family home in Washington state. Rayette threatens to kill herself if Bobby leaves her, so he reluctantly asks her along. Driving north, they pick up two women headed for Alaska, one of whom is obsessed with « filth ». The four of them are thrown out of a restaurant when Bobby gets into an argument with a waitress who refuses to accommodate his special order. Embarrassed by Rayette’s lack of polish, Bobby registers her in a motel before proceeding to the family home on an island in Puget Sound. He finds Partita giving their father a haircut, but the old man seems completely oblivious to him.
At dinner Bobby meets Catherine Van Oost, a young pianist engaged to his brother Carl, a violinist. Rayette runs out of money at the motel and comes to the Dupea estate unannounced. Her presence creates an awkward situation, but when pompous family friend Samia ridicules her, Bobby comes to her defense. Storming from the room in search of Catherine, he discovers his father’s male nurse giving Partita a massage. Now more agitated, he picks a fight with the nurse, who knocks him to the floor. Bobby tries to persuade Catherine to go away with him, but she declines, believing he does not love himself, or anything at all.
