Lawless love

Ruth and Bob are two young Texan lovers on the wrong side of the law. A failed burglary ends with Ruth inadvertently shooting a police officer. Bob selflessly takes the blame, and is sentenced to 25 years in jail. On the outside, Ruth faces a serious dilemma: should she wait for her childhood sweetheart or be seduced by the plain, but reliable Patrick – the policeman she almost killed? Sick with longing and jealousy, Bob attempts a daring escape.
