They cut out part of his tubercular lung in prison. But after the breakout, all Larry Camonille can do is run and keep on running. He's ready to die rather than go back inside. Mexico looks good, where the weather is more accommodating to a man with bad lungs. He wants to stay in Chicago and take care of that lying tramp who promised to keep the getaway money for him. But Chicago is too hot. On the lam, Camonille bums it down to Ohio. That's where he meets Vera, a used-up lush with a warm and inviting manner. And Jan, fresh and young and boy-crazy. They both want something from Camonille, but all he has to give is his life.
