Drama. On a bird-watching trip, David and his younger brother meet two escaped convicts - Donny the Bull (big and crazy), and Keith (weedy and sinister). The men take the boys with them, finding their presence at roadblocks useful, and go looking for the loot that Donny had buried years earlier. The men fight among themselves, and Donny saves the boys' lives. Trying to escape on the boat, to the boys' dismay, the police recapture Donny.
