‘The Chase’ Movie Summary

World War II veteran and penniless drifter, Chuck Scott suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder in Miami. When he finds a wallet outside a restaurant, he returns it to its owner. His honesty impresses the wallet’s owner; a gangster named Eddie Roman, and he hires “Scotty” to be his driver.

On their first day out, Roman decides to see what Scotty is made of. He assumes control of the gas and brake of the car with a flip of a switch in the backseat. This test surprises Scotty, and freaks out Roman’s crony, Gino because he doesn’t know how good of a driver Scotty is.

Roman controls everything and everyone including his wife, Lorna, whom he locks in her room most of the time. However, Roman lets Lorna out every night at 9:30pm for a long drive which she takes to the beach. On one of their drives, Lorna asks Scotty to take her to Havana, Cuba which he agrees to do for $1,000, and because he’s kind of in love with her.
