Nicholson stars as a radio personality who prefers to reminisce about his life and family back home rather than play records. When Nicholson returns for a visit he finds brother Dern, king of the get-rich-quick schemers, working for a black crime syndicate. Dern is involved in another scheme which means embezzling money from his boss--not a smart idea although Nicholson can't disuade him. Talky drama also features Burstyn as Dern's neglected girlfriend.
