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

Kimble is working at a roller skating rink when he assists a boy picked on by bullies. When the boy's uncle, Joe Hallop (actor Tim O'Connor) shows up, he believes he recognizes Kimble, then confirms it is true. Hallop lives with his dead brother's widow and her son, and works in their small diner.

Kimble and Hallop were in the same army unit in the Korean War, where Kimble served as a medic. Hallop saved Kimble's life, though Kimble did not know who it was because he was unconscious and then shipped out. However, during the incident Hallop suffered a leg injury still causing him to limp, and a disfiguring scar on his face.

Hallop suffers greatly from physical pain and from the psychological pain of feeling that his life is ruined and that no woman will want him. He blames Kimble for his troubles. While pretending friendliness to Kimble, he plots revenge. Kimble feels obligated to Hallop, and cannot leave without helping him toward a happier life.
