Academy Award winner Humphrey Bogart stars as a convict whose early parole comes at a steep price. Roy Earle (Bogart) barely has a chance to savor his freedom before learning that his release from prison has been arranged in exchange for his help in a high-stakes jewelry heist. Earle knows the caper will most likely end badly for him--and for the brash young thugs in on the job--but he has no choice. Even though Earle finds love with a hardened woman (Ida Lupino) living on the criminal fringe and uses his share of the loot to help a needy young woman (Joan Leslie), he cannot outrun his fate: Earle flees, but the law catches up to him in the High Sierra.
