Plot Summary
Bootlegger Babe Callahan runs his business out of his brother George’s home. Carol, George’s wife, is unaware of the illegal business in her house because she is too busy tending to her restaurant. George, who is just as shady as his brother, steals some money at his job in order to buy expensive jewelry for one of the waitresses at Carol’s restaurant. George kills an officer that was tasked with inspecting his home, and hides his body in the cellar. When a Prohibition officer later finds the body, George goes on the run with his children. Babe goes off in search of George, leading to a wild chase that ends with George driving his truck off a cliff.
