Surgeon Richard Kimble is accused of killing his wife and sentenced to death. He claims that he found at home an unknown person who killed his wife, but no one believes him. During transportation, one of the prisoners attacks the guard of the prison bus. The bus flies over the fence and falls on the railroad tracks. Risking his life, Kimble pulls the guard out of the bus and makes an escape. He enters the hospital, steals the belongings of one of the patients and drives away by ambulance. At the scene of the disaster arrives a detachment of marshals led by Samuel Gerard. Gerard overtakes Kimble, but he jumps into the dam's waterfall.
Strange, at first glance, the behavior of the fugitive leads Gerard to the idea that Kimble is innocent. Looking for the fugitive, Gerard discovers that Kimble, running away from the marshals, is simultaneously conducting her own investigation, trying to find out the name and motives of the mysterious one-armed killer. Returning to Chicago , Kimble ends up in a hospital with a prosthetics workshop, and posing as a cleaner, he enters the workshop database and figures out the killer - this is a certain Frederick Sykes who lost his hand while serving in the police. Having burst into Sykes’s apartment, Kimble learns that he worked for a certain Alec Lance, a pathologist from Chicago Memorial Hospital (where Richard himself had also worked) and a partner at Devlin-McGregor, who had lobbied for the speedy launch of a new revolutionary drug RDU-90 (Provazik), which cleans blood vessels from blood clots and cholesterol deposits. Kimble was one of the experts involved in the study of the new drug, and found out that Provazik had one serious side effect: it very quickly destroyed the liver of patients. The criminals, learning about Kimble's search, ordered his murder to Sykes, but Kimble was called for an emergency operation, and his wife was the victim.
Sykes kills the patrolman, the police are convinced that the murder was committed by Kimble, the general hunt for him begins. Kimble disarms Sykes and leaves him handcuffed in a subway car. Kimble enters a meeting of doctors and exposes his colleague, Dr. Nichols, who falsified the results of drug testing. Gerard agrees with his version of the events. Kimble is found not guilty. The next day, he goes to his old job and tells his colleagues and patients about everything that happened to him.
