Plot – Rachel Lapp is a widow and decides to take her son Samuel to her sister's house. Leaving their rural community in Pennsylvania, they stop at a station and Samuel assists to a barbaric murder in the toilets, committed by a black man who was fighting against another thug. Inspector John Book investigates and interrupts their journey: the police works hard because the killed man was an agent. Book shows the little witness hundreds of mugshots and Samuel identifies the criminal's face on a poster at the police station: it's McFee's face, a Narcotics agent, who knows the boy witnessed the murder. McFee was leading illegal traffics together with the same head of the police district. McFee shoots Book, who flees in his car with Rachel and Samuel. Their only possibility is refuging in the Amish community.
