Rain Murphy (Peter Strauss) is sent to Folsom Prison, California, after killing his violent, drunkard father. Folsom is populated by the most hardened of criminals, and Rains runs to escape the hopelessness of prison life. He almost manages a four-minute mile (known as the 'Jericho Mile'), and soon becomes a contender for the Olympics.
