Synopsis

Lonnie Wilson returns to his Clinton, La., home after serving a six-year sentence for manslaughter. He revives his romance with Melinda, the daughter of prominent local man Colonel Marquand -- who's also the woman who caused the fatal accident that he took the fall for. With Lonnie wrapped around Melinda's finger, the Colonel makes plans to double-cross Lonnie when he bribes him into taking the blame for his daughter one more time.
