After a group of convicts escapes from prison, they take refuge in the wilderness. While most of the crew are ruthless sociopaths, Jim Canfield is an innocent man who was jailed under false pretenses.

Things get direr when rumors of hidden money arise, and Canfield discovers that the man who framed him is part of the community.
