Answering a call from a prison warden (Addison Richards, series host John Newland) is told a strange story about a young convict named Tom (played by a pre-Baretta Robert Blake). In flashback, we learn that Tom had wanted to participate a jailbreak masterminded by a hardened con named Gypsy (Johnny Seven), who has already agreed to take his pals Abe (Murvyn Vye) and Folger (John Kellogg) "over the wall." But Gypsy has had a premonition that a fourth escapee will bring bad luck--and as it turns out, he's right. Seriously wounded during the breakout, Gypsy tries to persuade Tom to give himself up...leading to a surprising denoument.
