Four convicts, Washington, Telson, Kraft and Kimberly are going to a high school to speak to the students. Kraft sees a man with a gun, he takes it and uses the guards with them as shields. Later one of the guards tries to take them but is shot. Stone and Robbins arrive and learn that Washington and Telson only had a year or two left to serve while Kraft and Kimberly have longer sentences. Later the car is found and the other guard, Sgt. Mack is found. He tells them that Kraft and Kimberly are probably working together because Kimberly has some money stashed out of the country and Kraft is out to get the one who's responsible for his arrest and conviction.
