The One-Line Summary: Harry Stoner (Lemmon) is a war veteran living in the bustle of the early 1970s, conflicted about the lost ideals he and his fellow soldiers fought (and many who died) for and the growing complexities of adult life compared to his care-free youth, now watching the garment company he manages fall to ruin with no legal way to keep it afloat, forcing him to consider a terrible option, one that strains his relationship with his business partner and further crumbles the last of his waning integrity in this film directed by John G. 394 more words
