Movie Info

The Only Way Home, a psychological drama made three years after the release of Easy Rider, attempts to take advantage of the earlier film's inexplicable popularity. It tells the story of two young men who set out on the open road after working a series of dead-end, menial jobs. They encounter a rich couple and stop to help them change a flat tire. Something the husband says causes one of the men to strike the husband with a tire iron, killing him. Panicked, they take the wife hostage.
