Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble, duffel bag in hand, disembark from a truck labeled "Checkerboard Van Lines", from which he had hitched a ride] No matter how far a man may run, he cannot escape the emotional ties which binds him to his past. So Richard Kimble finds himself drawn to the factory town of Hempstead Mills. Reason: the chance reading of a small item in a local newspaper.

Plot summary
3 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kimble reads of the illness of Dr. McAllister, played by actor Laurence Naismith, and comes to visit. Dr. McAllister gave Kimble his first job and was a mentor to him. Nurse Murdock, who knows Kimble, prefers he were not there, to avoid exciting McAllister and worsening his health.

Dr. McAllister is a crusader against pollution and works with the daughter of a rich industrialist who is causing a great deal of the pollution.

He gives Kimble a package to deliver to the plant, not informing Kimble it is a bomb. But he regrets his actions when he learns school children will be there when it goes off. Kimble must save the children and evade the police to make his escape.
