Dying clown Keefer is taking son McGreevey to a convent school in Texas when he dies. The boy takes up with an escaped convict, Stanton, who eludes the police by wearing the makeup of the boy's late father. McGreevey learns Stanton's identity and rides his horse out into a raging tornado.
The police show up to arrest Stanton, but he escapes and goes out to look for the boy. He finds him unconscious and brings him back, turning himself in to the cops. Trashy sentiment with a no-name cast. Pass it by.
