Description by

No more lockups, no more shakedowns, no more cell walls. Frank "Fast-Walking" Miniver wants out. Frank is a prison guard. With light-stepping, glib-talking ease Miniver sets out to make his dreams of a place in Oregon come true by staging a for-profit prison break in this gleeful, gritty caper from thriller specialist James B. Harris (Cop, Boiling Point). James Woods is Miniver, a conniving rascal a lot like the guys on the inside - except he goes home each night. Unable to raise extra needed money by running a seedy off-hours whorehouse, Miniver reaches for the big time when a renowned activist (Robert Hooks) is jailed and makes clear his willingness to buy his way out. Will Miniver take the $50,000 and run? Or is he a man of his word. The name's Fast-Walking. But Miniver's going to have to so some Fast-Thinking.

Product Description:

Prison guard "Fast-Walking" Miniver (James Woods) doesn't spend too much time worrying about right and wrong. He gets stoned while on duty and solicits johns for the local whorehouse. But Miniver's choices are about to become a lot more difficult: his cousin, incarcerated in the jail where "Fast-Walking" works, lets Miniver in on a plot to knock off black militant William Galliot (Robert Hooks). However, Miniver has already accepted money to facilitate Galliot's escape. Now "Fast-Walking" has to decide whether to kill Galliot or help him... and either way, someone's going to be very angry.

Plot Synopsis:

A pot smoking prison guard becomes involved in an escape plot in order to make enough money to move to Oregon and "live the easy life." He helps a controversial black militant leader break out of prison.
