The Lost Man (1969)


The secretive leader of a black militant group, Jason Higgs (Poitier) plots a dangerous payroll robbery; the money is marked for a mysterious organization that benefits the children for jailed black men. When the heist goes horribly wrong, Higgs and his men go on the run, with the entire Philadelphia police force following their every move. Faced with betrayal on the streets of their own neighborhood, they turn to a white social worker for help, crossing the color lines in a last-ditch attempt at saving their lives.
