After experiencing WWI, veteran Larry Darrell (Bill Murray) seeks spiritual peace and recovery. After leaving his fiancee (Catherine Hicks), he travels to war-torn Europe and finally to the mystic Himalayas, and eventually finds what he's looking for in manual labor and the wisdom of an Indian guru. However, Larry realizes that he can no longer resume the life he left behind, and that he must end his relationship with his fiancee if he is to reach his goal.
