Bank robber Jim Larsen (Fred MacMurray) is handcuffed to Deputy Marshal George Allison (Francis De Sales) on his way to begin a 5–to-10-year prison sentence. Without animosity, Larsen says he will use his time in prison to plan more robberies. Larsen feels he was only caught by using a partner; the next time will be singlehanded. Boarding the train, Larsen overpowers the deputy, takes his pistol and handcuffs him to the rear car of the train. Larsen's younger brother Danny (Ron Hayes) comes to free Larsen, who chides Danny that he does not need help from anyone. Danny is shot by the Marshal and eventually dies from his wounds. Things never go as planned and Jim Larsen (now using the alias Kincaid) realizes that going straight is not going to be as easy as he might think.
