When a meteorite lands near his family farm during a storm in Tennessee, the son of a struggling farmer believes it's connected to strange plague-like events afflicting the crops, the farm animals and even the family themeselves.
Eddie Macon will do anything for and to be with his wife and young son, Chris and Bobby. It is for Bobby that they moved from Florida to Texas, one injustice after another which lands Eddie behind bars at Huntsville ultimately on a twenty year sentence. With Chris' help, Eddie plots to break out of prison, the plan to make his way on foot, traveling solely at night, to Laredo where he will cross the border into Mexico to meet Chris and Bobby, he and Chris figuring that he is not important enough for the Mexican authorities to bother sending him back if he is ever caught south of the border.

While Marzack's colleagues' method is to chase, Marzack is more methodical, believing he just needs to follow the crumbs ultimately with Eddie showing himself in the process. There ...Written by
A very good movie! First, the plot listed is incorrect. He does not escape from a prison in Alabama, but rather the state prison in Huntsville, Texas, (the author apparently got their "Huntsvilles" mixed up and assumed it was Alabama.) There is, in fact, a prison in Huntsville, TX, and the entire movie takes place in Texas & Mexico. A lot of action, albeit, the plot's outcome is apparent throughout. Still, this movie has an outstanding cast for a low-budget film and the original music by John Schneider is excellent. I would definitely recommend this to any fan of Kirk Douglas, John Schneider, or just your average action-movie-without-all-the-big-time-Hollywood-promotion stuff. I would say it is along the lines of movies such as "Lone Wolf McQuade", "Hunter's Blood", or "Avenging Force", all great movies without a lot of hype!
