One night, small-time hood Jerry loses it, knocks out his ditsy girlfriend, who's working the night shift in a convenience store, and robs the place. Two police officers arrive to buy something and run into Jerry. After a shootout, one cop is dead and Jerry is shot in the gut. He survives and is taken to hospital. The cops threaten him but no one can touch him. He gathers that his best way out is to try to gain his nurse's trust and affection and convince her to let him escape. It works and nurse Ellen agrees to do it. However, Jerry doesn't have the whole picture.
