Plot summary
24 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kimble is beaten and robbed by teens. Jane Washburn, brilliantly played by actress Shirley Knight, sees it. She follows Kimble into a restaurant and offers aid. She is puzzled that he does not want to report the crime to the police. He accepts a ride with her.

Jane is small, feminine, reserved and soft-spoken. Kimble gets a big surprise when it turns out she is a policewoman and handcuffs herself to him, hoping to take him back to the station for questioning. Kimble is forced to make a desperate break through the countryside handcuffed to Jane. The police, equally desperate to find Jane, lean hard on the teens to get them to confess and identify the robbery victim so they will know who they are dealing with.
