Eddie Macon's Run is an action crime drama released by Universal Pictures in 1983, directed by Jeff Kanew.  The story is based on a 1980 novel by James McLendon.

Eddie Macon is a young man with a loving wife and small son, struggling to make a living.  When it is discovered that their son is ill Eddie moves the family to Texas where he believes he can make a better living for them.  Once there he lands a job only to find that 25% of his wages are taken from him in a kick-back scheme.

Quitting his job and driving away angry, he is speeding when he is pulled over by the local cops and he winds up in a scuffle with them.  Arrested and taken to court, Eddie is sentenced to prison in Huntsville.

Worried about his family, Eddie comes up with a plan to escape from prison and meet his family in Mexico.  While performing at the prison’s rodeo, he makes his escape and sets out on foot to Laredo where he hopes to cross the border into Mexico.

On his trail is Buster Marzack, the determined, no-nonsense cop whose job it is to find Eddie and bring him back to prison.

Along the way Eddie is befriended by a wealthy young woman, Jilly Buck, who helps him.
