Not wanting to see a dame manhandled, tough Pennsylvania miner William Hall (as Nicholas "Nick" Allen) assists street-walking Steffi Duna (as Josephine "Jo" Elliott) during a disagreement with gangsters. A resulting ruckus leaves Mr. Hall taking both Ms. Duna and a slug to the shoulder. Nursing his wound gets Hall involved with Duna's associates, a crime gang led by Dean Jagger (as James "Capper" Regan). Unluckily, they are "WANTED" for a recent murder. So, Hall is chased along with Mr. Jagger, Ward Bond (as Peter "Spudsy" Baker) and Murray Alper (as Horace "Red" Graham)...
The gang, with Hall providing some cover, takes refuge at what turns out to be an idyllic farm. They hide out there, with kindly blind Charles Waldron (as Pop Adams) and "Bill", his resourceful German Sheppard. The dog catches rabbits for the gang to eat, after thanking God. Hall finds romance with Mr. Waldron's pretty daughter Anne Nagel (as Linda). They enjoy sunbathing together. Living on the farm makes most of the criminal gang good. They reform into nice citizens. They resist a potential lucrative return to former criminal ways. But will the police understand, and forgive past sins?
