Plot summary
27 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kimble is working at a construction company run by Buck Harmon (actor Jack Klugman). He has persuaded Buck to hire Jamie (actor Buck Taylor), who is of below-normal intelligence. The other workers pick on Jamie, and Kimble tries to protect him. Buck's wife Ruth (actress Elizabeth Allen) lives with Buck at the worksite. She helps Jamie to learn to read and they become close. She has no children of her own, and Jamie is like a child to her.

Ruth dresses sexily and attracts the attention of the men at the worksite. A man attacks her in the shower and leaves her unconscious. Her screams were heard by a neighbor, who sees Jamie leaving.

Jamie runs away, and everyone but Kimble is convinced of his guilt. Workers get their guns to hunt him down. From their talk Kimble fears they will kill Jamie. Kimble must protect Jamie, but this puts him up against Buck, who like the workers is convinced of Jamie's guilt.
