Opening Narration: There is a point beyond which a man cannot push himself, a final defeat of the spirit that cannot be overcome. If it is to end for the running man, this is the way it will be. It is two a.m. in the city, and Richard Kimble, doctor of medicine, moves to the start of another working day. To those with no past and little future, the city only offers the most menial of labors, those designed to provide nothing more than day-to-day survival. But to Richard Kimble, kitchen helper in an all-night diner, survival for even a day has come to be enough.
Closing Narration: In the city, the search for Richard Kimble goes on. But it is one more grim appointment that he will not keep. The relentless steel jaws will close on an empty trap. But for Richard Kimble, the Fates are preparing another appointment, at another time, at another place.
