After being wrongfully convicted for the murder of his wife, Dr. Richard Kimble Ford escapes from custody and sets out to prove his innocence while pursued by a team of U.S. Marshals led by Deputy Samuel Gerard Jones.

Dr. Richard Kimble, a prominent Chicago vascular surgeon, arrives home to find his wife Helen fatally wounded by a onearmed man. Kimble struggles with the killer but he escapes. The lack of evidence of a breakin, Helens lucrative life insurance policy, and a misunderstood 911 call result in Kimbles conviction of firstdegree murder. Being transported to death row by bus, his fellow prisoners attempt an escape. The pandemonium sends the bus down a ravine and into the path of an oncoming train. Kimble escapes the collision and flees. Deputy U.S. Marshal Samuel Gerard and his colleagues Renfro, Biggs, Newman and Poole arrive at the crash site and begin the search for Kimble. Kimble sneaks into a hospital to treat his wounds and alter his appearance. He eludes the authorities, but Gerard corners him at the edge of a storm drain over a dam. Kimble leaps into the raging water and escapes.Kimble returns to Chicago to hunt for the murderer and acquires money from his friend and colleague Dr. Charles Nichols. Posing as a janitor, Kimble enters the local county hospitals prosthetic department to obtain a list of people who had their prosthetic arm repaired shortly after his wifes murder. Following a police lead confirming Kimbles recent whereabouts, Gerard speculates Kimble is searching for the onearmed man. Kimble breaks into the residence of one of the people on the list, a former police officer named Fredrick Sykes. Kimble discovers not only that Sykes is the murderer, but he is employed by a pharmaceutical company, Devlin MacGregor, which is scheduled to release a new drug called Provasic. Kimble previously investigated the drug and discovered it caused liver damage, which would prevent it from being approved by the FDA. He also deduces that Nichols, who is leading the drugs development, arranged a coverup and ordered Sykes to kill him his wifes death was incidental. Gerard follows Kimbles lead to Sykes home and draws the same conclusion. ........
