It was also known as The Numbers.
A washed-up inventor takes matters into his own hands in a very extreme way when he learns that his house will be condemned and his beloved children left on the street.
Danny Travis is so upset that when a city official comes to evict him from the premises, he takes the man hostage. A television reporter, Paula Herbert, turns public sympathies for and against Travis, prolonging the story opportunistically as a Los Angeles police captain, Gerrity, attempts to defuse the situation.
