Robert Palmer (Regis Toomey) patiently endures prison, dreaming of when he can return to his family. Incarcerated for two years, Palmer keeps his sentence a secret from his mother to spare her feelings. Upon returning home, he's able to resume his life and his job at the bank, but he's plagued by paranoia. When a bank robbery threatens to expose his past, Palmer must finally face his issues. George Melford directs.
