Seeking to clear his name and expose the true murderer, the young man escapes from his imprisonment, only to be pursued by the best deputy in the entire region, a reliable and unrelenting policeman who believes strongly in the law. But when this deputy inevitably catches up with the wrongly convicted man, can he be convinced of his innocence and be enlisted into the man's quest for justice?
