Savannah (Bridgette Anderson) is six-years-old, and is unhappy at home. Her father, Richard Driscoll (Chris Robinson) is running for the United States Senate and her mother Joan (Barbara Stanger) is a busy socialite, they seem to have no time to spend with Savannah and rarely pay attention to her. She decides to run away from home.

She writes a note to her parents, and then heads to the park with her aunt. At the park, she makes her getaway and hides in another car. The car belongs to two escaped convicts, Alvie (Mark Miller) and Bootsie (Donavan Scott) who initially want nothing to do with the child.

At home, the maid finds Savannah’s note and gives it to her father. Richard, afraid that his chances at election into the senate will be damaged if the press got a hold of the note his daughter wrote expressing her desire to run away from home, decides to burn the note. He makes the maid swear that she never saw it, either. In the meantime, he posts a $100,000 reward for Savannah’s safe return.

However, the two have become enchanted with the little girl, and she has grown close to them as well during their adventure. Alvie, Bootsie and Savannah have become a makeshift family in the process, and she has finally gotten some of the love and attention she has been looking for.

When Alvie and Bootsie find out about the reward, they decide to contact the Driscoll’s and arrange for Savannah’s safe return in exchange for the money. With the help of the family priest (Pat Morita), the escapees make plans to get Savannah back to her parents. But, Savannah becomes lost in the mountains before this happens and the criminals are forced to decide whether their love for Savannah is worth sacrificing their one chance at freedom.
