Regarded as high risk due to repeated escape attempts, Quawntay Adams is transferred to a maximum-security jail in Alton, Ill. Despite the constant surveillance, he escapes through a ventilation window. As part of his plan, he manipulates an unwitting female accomplice to wait for him outside the prison and drive him to a nearby motel. But when police press her for details, she gives up his location, and he finds himself surrounded at the motel by police - and quickly on his way back to jail!
