Dr. Kimble, harvesting onions at an onion field, faces hostility from the other farm workers. A number of them are Mexican laborers who are suspicious about his presence - after all, he doesn't look like one of them. The workers are recruited to help fight a forest fire. When a pregnant woman starts to feel labor pains, the nurse discovers she can't have a natural delivery. They need an obstetrician to perform a cesarean section. But with fire all around them, and the roads blocked, it's impossible to get to a hospital in time.

Lt. Philip Gerard: Three months ago I had a wire from a sheriff east of El Paso. Transient he hustled out of town. Might have been Kimble. A possibility... Now suppose he's working his way west from crop to crop. Lettuce in Texas, carrots in New Mexico, oranges in Arizona... This is a typical pattern, Captain, following the crop. Might turn up in California. I could be there, waiting.

Plot summary
24 December 2007 | by ynot-16See all my reviews

Kimble, working as a farmworker, is disliked and distrusted by the others, who suspect him of being a cop or immigration agent. Paco (actor Alejandro Rey), an illegal immigrant, is one of his tormentors.

A forest fire emergency leads to Kimble and others working on fire control. Paco's wife, Maria, follows the men to the fire scene. She goes into labor and is seen by the nurse, Doris (actress Beverly Garland), at the first-aid tent. The nurse declares Maria needs emergency surgery, but there is no doctor, and the fire has cut off the roads. Kimble wants to help, but an eager radio news reporter is snooping around and threatens to uncover his identity.
