On his way out of town after finishing a stint as a migrant farm worker, Dr. Kimble is prevailed upon to help a couple who claims their son needs a doctor. Though Kimble says he's not a doctor, that he just knows first aid, the couple are desperate. No one else is around who can help. Once Kimble arrives at the cabin, he finds out that things are not as they were presented to him. It turns out that the child is a kidnap victim who sustained some bruising when he was snatched. As a hemophiliac, there's a danger of internal bleeding. When Kimble can't convince the kidnappers to take the child to a hospital, he asks them to go to a pharmacy for vitamin K, a coagulant that would promote blood clotting. But the pharmacy won't dispense it without a prescription. Kimble must come up with a way to save the child.
Kimble is leaving a migrant worker job where he is known as "Doc," a former ambulance driver. An attractive couple persuades him to come and look at their sick little boy.
When Kimble arrives at the remote cabin, he learns that the "couple" was a woman and her brother-in-law. The real husband Ralph Simmons, played by actor Claude Akins, is a tough ex-football player. The three of them have kidnapped a small child for ransom. Jimmy, unfortunately, suffers from hemophilia and his internal injuries pose severe medical danger. Kimble himself faces danger as he tries to maneuver around the crooks and see to Jimmy's safety.
