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

Kimble (Bill Carter) is jailed for a minor traffic accident, and makes friends with Davy, played by actor Jack Weston. Davy is overweight, and of below-normal intelligence. He is in jail for public drunkenness. When Davy is released, Kimble, whose prints have been sent to the State Police and whose identity will soon be discovered, uses the opportunity to escape. The problem: Davy wants to tag along. Kimble has no time to argue and leaves with Davy right behind.

They hop a train to Davy's home, where he was summoned by his mother because his father is dying. Davy has been away for years. To Kimble's surprise, they are a wealthy family with a horse ranch.

Davy's father (David Sr.) and brother (Frank) despise and ridicule him, to the dismay of his mother, who loves Davy and just wants a happy family. Davy despises himself for being fat and a dummy, and also for a past action that embarrasses him. When Kimble stands up for Davy against Frank, he gains an enemy whose suspicions of Kimble lead to danger. Kimble must solve an old mystery, and put Davy on track to a happier future, before he can escape.
