Résumé: Drame social. À la suite d'un délit mineur, Luke est incarcéré dans une colonie pénitentiaire d'un État du Sud.

Repris, il s'enfuit de nouveau, mais lorsque ses gardiens le rattrapent, ils parviennent à le briser par un traitement d'une brutalité particulière. Luke s'échappe tout de même une troisième fois et il est tué par ses poursuivants. [(c) Médiafilm].
