Plot summary

The police are hot on Kimble's trail. He jumps from a moving truck and runs into the countryside. Lt. Gerard is shocked when the local police refuse to help him chase Kimble, who has run into moonshine country. The local police stay out because when invaded the moonshiners set fire to the woods, and the chance of the government to make up the tax revenue would not compensate for the cost and trouble caused.

The moonshiners, led by Tully (actor R. G. Armstrong), hate outsiders, but ultimately warm to Kimble, who saves the life of Cody (actor Bruce Dern). Gerard pursues Kimble on his own, but is captured and harassed. As an outsider, a cop, and a man wearing a store-bought suit, Gerard has three strikes against him. When Tully's daughter is beaten into unconsciousness, the moonshiners take the law into their own hands, wrongly accuse Gerard, and plan to lynch him. Ironically, Gerard cannot prove he saw a man running from the scene of the crime, and must turn to Kimble to try to prove his innocence.
