Two sergeant aids, Thurman and Jim, deal with a jurisdiction where crime or crimes are not taking place. But this does not convince the old serif that something will never happen. The village of their lack of interest and their incompetence, dismisses them. In addition, they have not been able to make any arrest lately. However, when a prisoner from a nearby prison escapes, the two are determined to catch him to rejoin the sheriff’s graces and to recapture his jobs.
