Chester Jones, fired after 20 years as chief engineer at Trowbridge Industries and deeply in debt, hears a police siren as he points a gun at the head of bank teller Joanna Butler. He orders all other bank employees and customers out, but keeps Joanna as a hostage, threatening to kill her if the police try to storm the building. When his demand that Trowbridge rehire him is met, he still refuses to release Joanna who, after a while, begins to understand what he really wants.
