Information from IMDb
Based of the Graham Greene novel about a revolutionary priest
in Central America.
A priest who is The Fugitive is trying to getaway from the authorities
who have denounced Christianity and want anyone linked to it dead.
The Fugitive finds shelter with an Indian Woman (The Woman),
a faithful parishioner, who gives the priest directions to Puerto Grande,
where he could then board a ship and sail to freedom in America.
On his journey to Puerto Grande, he meets up with a man who says
he will protect him.
In reality, he is the Police Informer and once The Fugitive realizes this,
he is back on the run, but the Police Informer is never far behind
along with the authorities.
