Determined not to lose her child to the authorities, Lou Jean Poplin gets her obedient convict husband Clovis to break out of jail and help her kidnap their baby from its foster parents.

With hostage Officer Slide in tow, the fugitives head across the plains to Sugarland, Texas, pursued by a flotilla of cop cars.

Even though Slide becomes the couple's friend, the Law is bent on capturing its criminal quarry.
