Billy Pilgrim has become unstuck in time. An otherwise typical soldier in WWII, without warning, he jumps back and forth in his life with no control over where he is going next.

In the end, he learns that the many tragic and sometimes funny ironies of life--the randomness of tragedy, the cruelty and senselessness of war, and man's complete lack of control over his fate--remain constant

Combining autobiographical elements with the experiences of his uncle, this is Kazan's most personal film, his vision of the impossibility of the American dream. It tells of the struggles of a young man, Stavros, to raise the money to make the journey from Anatolia to the United States and then to find the means to bring the rest of his extended family after him.
