In this rousing romantic adventure, Robert Redford plays ex-world champion cowboy, reduced to huckstering breakfast food in a suit studded with flashing lights. Jane Fonda is a chic, sharp member of the electronic media, a TV newswoman who'll do anything to get a good story. When Redford rides out of Las Vegas casino into the desert astride his sponsor's living symbol, a multi-million dollar racehorse, Jane is determined to discover why. She does, one step ahead of a posse of pursuing police. But by the time they reach a remote rendezvous, high in the Utah mountains, she is in love with both the Cowboy and his convictions.
