Christine Hartford, the unhappy wife of a conservative industrialist, discovers she is not as dumb as her husband tells her she is. Her heightened awareness leads to domestic conflict.
When a Navy corpsman produces evidence showing Agent Orange to be a toxic substance, Andy becomes involved in the war protest movement. Not all of his students appreciate his sentiments, particularly a Vietnam veteran who comes to class with a gun.
