Lucy Carrigan is a high school girl whose boyfriend, Daniel, went to fight in the Vietnam war. Lucy receives a letter from Daniel saying that he would come back home for a while, but Daniel ends up being killed in the war. In the film's Let it Be sequence, this tragic death is juxtaposed against other tragic deaths including the 1967 Detroit riots, in which the young brother of supporting character Jo-Jo is also killed.

Jude suspects that Paco is trying to seduce Lucy, which leads to a fight between them. Later, at a riot, Jude is arrested and deported back to England. Jude hears that anti-war protesters were killed in a bombing. Upon hearing this news, Jude thinks that Lucy is dead but later learns from Max that she is alive, and returns to New York legally.
