He is intent on getting revenge and vows to seduce the next woman he meets, then break her heart. Meanwhile, Dennis (Bill Sage), Bill's younger brother and a philosophy student, is concerned about their long-lost father, William McCabe (John A. MacKay), a former major league baseball star who became an anarchist bomber in the '60s and nearly blew up the Pentagon. The two bothers reunite and travel from New York to Long Island hoping to find their father. On their journey, the pair meet Romanian epileptic Elina (Elina Lowensohn) and her friend Kate (Karen Sillas).
