James Mason stars in this powerful suspense drama as Johnny McQueen, the leader of a quasi-IRA group. When he's wounded in a botched robbery, he becomes the object of an intense police manhunt and must scramble desperately about Belfast in an attempt to escape. Kathleen (Kathleen Ryan), the woman who loves him, also takes off in pursuit of Johnny, hoping to reach him before the police do. In the course of his flight, Johnny encounters an assortment of fascinating characters, making the film as much a portrait of a city as it is the drama of one man's life.
