Painter runs afoul of the law
10 October 1999 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

Good drama about a man chased by hot headed vigilantes and the police for a crime he claims to be innocent of. Along the way he is aided by a group of kids who believe in his innocence. Very exciting show with a satisfying ending.
