****SPOILERS*** Both Det. Let.Mike Stone, Karl Malden, and his partner Inspector Steve Keller, Michael Douglas, while hot on the trail of three escaped convicts Wilson Chickey & Vargas, Henry Sliva Bill Vint & Valentin de Varges, who've already kidnapped and murdered one of the prison guards are confronted with Keller's bleeding heart liberal girlfriend Connie,Jo Ann Harris, who feels that the three escaped convicts are victims of society not victimizes of it. Still the three escaped convicts end up murdering three more victims while on the loose with the caring for all humanity Connie feeling more for them then their victims.

The murderous thugs end up getting stopped at a local gas station when the attendant who recognized them blocked their escape, with Vargas locked in the gas station's men's room, while tipping off the police that has their leader the psycho Wilson kidnap Mrs. Lockwood, Ann Doran,and hold her hostage unless him and Chickey are given safe passage out of the country.

****SPOILERS*** In the stand-off that follows it's Mr. Lockwood, Robert Williams, who almost blows the entire operation as well as his held for ransom or hostage wife by jumping the gun at the San Francisco Zoo in trying to save her life without police help. In the end it doesn't take much for Det. Let. Stone & Inspector Keller to get the job done gunning down Chickey and having Wilson surrender to the police when he realized his situation was hopeless. As for bleeding heart Connie she finally got the message to what life on the mean streets of San Francisco is really all about. But it took the live of some half dozen people getting cold blooded & brutally murdered by by those that she loves so much, the three escaped convicts, to finally convince her.
