Why would a conman, recently released from prison, with his ex-cellmate be doing in Fresno, California on the eve of a 4th of July weekend in 1938? Carl Duryea says he wants to help Johnny Blackham clear his name for a bank robbery he did not commit. Three others are also happy to find Blackham has returned; they have plans for him...and for Duryea as well.
