Police, investigating an unrelated crime, call out to Kimble. Fearing
the worst, he runs, but ultimately is captured and put in the jail in
Wyler County, Montana. In the next cell is Rafe Carter (actor James
Farentino), a convicted killer on his way to be executed. Deputy
Sheriff Emery Dalton (actor Percy Rodriguez), against the advice of the
sheriff, takes both prisoners to Helena. Carter is taken to be
executed, while Kimble (posing as Thomas Barrett) is taken to be
identified, Dalton figuring he must be wanted for something. Carter is
a racist who continually taunts Dalton, who is black.
Dalton and his assistant, Deputy Lockett, run into real problems as
Carter has friends ready to bust him loose. Ultimately, Dalton, wounded
and on foot, has to march the two prisoners alone 50 miles to Helena.
Kimble is determined to escape, but is disturbed by Carter's plan to
kill Dalton to make good his escape.
