Dr. Avrial Woodsen, a prominent New York psychiatrist, suffers an almost fatal heart attack as the result of the stress caused when a psychopathic patient murders his wife. In order to rebuild his shattered life and repair his damaged heart he moves to a small Arizona town that has a park with a footpath. During his daily walks to strengthen his heart he meets several of the town’s residents, some of whom stop to talk with him, to share their problems. On one walk he meets Alexis, a widow newly arrived in town, and is immediately attracted to her, which leads to a growing romance. Suddenly their lives are disrupted when Avrial's wife’s murderer comes to Arizona and begins stalking him. Then the escaped convict strikes, kidnapping Avrial, Alexis and her daughter Margaret, and locking them in an abandoned mine. Although Alexis shows calm fortitude and ingenuity she is unable to engineer their escape. The trio appears doomed. But there is a surprising twist to their fate.
