Danny Brady is running out of time. In only one week, he's gone from being an honest auto mechanic to a criminal on the run for the Mexican border. His charges: grand theft, kidnapping, battery and murder.
Mickey Rooney stars as Danny, a kid with his sights on impressing a beautiful diner waitress, Vera (Jeanne Cagney). When he asks her out on a date a couple of days before his payday, he borrows money from the garage's cash register, intending to replace it by the time the accountant comes to count the drawer. When he arrives earlier, Danny is thrown in a downward spiral of deceit and terror. After mugging an old drunk, strangling his boss, and stealing a car, his only choice is to run for the border. But will he make it alive?
