An elderly woman named Victoria Brown discovers an escaped convict, Mooney Polaski, hiding in her attic. At first she is horrified, but gradually she becomes fascinated by the fast-talking fugitive and permits him to stay in her house while the local sheriff and his men hunt for him. A relationship develops between the unlikely pair: he finds the home he never had and she overcomes her loneliness.
