An accident sends Jimmy McRae (Vincent Van Patten), a child, to the hospital where his bleeding won't stop. Turns out he has aplastic anemia and needs compatible blood. Mommy's won't work. Will Daddy's? But isn't he, Nick McRae, the man on the run from the law and acting so stupid you may want to kick the set in?
Nick (William Windom) is a fugitive with a rare blood type which is the only one who can save his son.
