Federal agent Elliot Ness (Robert Stack) and gangster boss Vince Majeski (Claude Akins) are both very interested when fugitive hoodlum Johnny Meizo (Rip Torn) returns from Brazil. It seems that just before leaving the States, Meizo had stolen $200,000 of Majeski's money. On the lam from both the Feds and the Mob, Meizo hides out with his sister-in-law Doris (Virginia Christine) and her nephew Arnie (Tim Considine, taking time off from his regular TV duties on My Three Sons). Upon realizing that Arnie is becoming as cold-blooded as he is, Vince suddenly has an epiphany and tries to save the boy from a life of crime. A young Joyce Van Patten appears briefly as an ill-fated nightclub dancer.
