Stella is an emotionally disturbed woman with a dangerous attraction to Johnny, the adopted eight-year-old son of Jesse Stangel, Kimble's co-worker.

    • Opening Narration: Tractor, New Jersey -- a small industrial town where a passerby has summoned the police to a mugging in a dirty alley. But this senseless beating is about to take on far more significance to a man not even witness to it -- a man named Richard Kimble.

    • Closing Narration: For each of us, there is an occasional moment of fantasy, a search for a straw man of our own. But Richard Kimble can only hope that the memory of a face caught once in the glare of headlights is made of something other than straw.
