The second pairing between Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland, in which the two are members of a group of misfits seeking to fix up an amphibious plane in order to escape a society they find constricting.

From Wikipedia: Fonda, Sutherland and Boyle were active in anti-war activities when the film was made, and as a result it did not receive wide release or much publicity. It remains memorable, however, for its oddball characters, anti-establishment message, and 1970s sensibilities. "Steelyard Blues" found a warm reception among college students and non-conformists. With a soundtrack by musicians Mike Bloomfield, Paul Butterfield, Nick Gravenites, Maria Muldaur and others. Shot on location throughout California.
