[Opening Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble hiding in the brush as police squad cars cruise past]
To a Fugitive, only the past is real. Each morning it rises with the sun, each night it returns with the darkness. There is no present, and for Richard Kimble, the future is filled with uncertainty and fear.

Kimble comes across the hiding place of another fugitive, Joe Tucker (played by actor Fritz Weaver), who is haggard, wounded, and paranoid. Bitter about being wrongly convicted of embezzlement on perjured testimony, Tucker has been running for four years. At first highly suspicious of Kimble, his bad condition ultimately forces him to trust Kimble a little.
Kimble, with Tucker's consent, uses his pickup and goes to town for medical supplies, leading to his capture by police, who are looking for Tucker's pickup. The officer and Tucker's daughter tell him Tucker has been proved innocent, and they want him to come in and be cleared. Kimble insists he does not know Tucker, and thus cannot tell them where Tucker is. The officer admits he has tricked Tucker by lying to him before.
When Kimble gets back to Tucker and tells him what the police said, Tucker thinks Kimble is a dupe, or a paid agent of the police. The police, now aware of Kimble's identity, are after both of them. Kimble could run, but he is the only one who can stop Tucker's plan for revenge.
