A Fugitive is like a long distance runner with a difference. A Fugitive's distance is infinity. Infinity is a long, impossibly long, way away. And there must be time for the hunter to rest, to gather strength and to move on again.

Kimble gets a job working as assistant to a rural veterinarian. While there, he meets Joshua Simmons (actor Harry Townes) and his daughter Ruth (actress Kim Darby). Joshua is a religious man devoted to old fashioned principles. He is ashamed that Ruth had a baby out of wedlock. Kimble gets involved because the baby is sick. Joshua feels that calling in doctors is morally wrong, fighting against the will of God.
Kimble faces danger from the obstinancy and anger of Joshua, as well as the interference of Pete (actor Tom Skeritt), a former deputy anxious to regain his job by capturing Kimble.
