Résumé: Drame social. À la faveur d'un accident, deux détenus s'échappent d'un convoi de prisonniers. L'un est noir, l'autre est blanc et la haine qui les oppose est aussi forte que la chaîne qui lie leurs poignets. Poursuivis par un détachement de policiers, ils doivent fuir ensemble bon gré mal gré à travers les fondrières et les marécages. Les épreuves et les dangers affrontés en commun font naître et grandir dans le coeur des forçats un sentiment mutuel d'admiration et de compréhension. Si bien que chacun d'eux risquera finalement sa liberté pour sauver son compagnon de la mort. [(c) Médiafilm] [SDM]
