Gordon Loomis has been in jail for 25 years for murder, and when he is released he has trouble coping with his new freedom--a freedom he feels he doesn't deserve. In addition, the world he faces is alien to him. He is unable to leave his old home, which is now part of a dying slum, until the women in his life rally round and help him find a way to make a new life in a world he doesn't understand.
