John Travolta and Debra Winger star in this yee-ha! take on Saturday Night Fever which sees them congregating at Houston's rough-house Gilley's country & western bar. Travolta plays Bud, a young country hick who moves to the city to find work at an oil refinery and finds love with Sissy (Winger), a cowgirl of loose virtue. However, are the first flush of romance they soon find out that life is harder to cope with than they imagined, lightened only by line-dancin nights at Gilleys. When Bud's not riding high on a mechanical bull he's keeping an eye on bull-riding ex-convict Scott Glenn who has his eye on Sissy.
