about

William "Kid" Collins was once a respected boxer. Now he's a drifter, on the run after escaping from a mental institution.

One afternoon he meets Fay, a beautiful young widow. She is smart and decent--at least when she's sober.

Not the safest situation for Collins, a man for whom stress and violence have long gone hand-in-hand.
