In "See How He Runs," Jim Backus plays a blind man who tries to escape from a syndicate that is out to kill him.
Poppy is the owner of a friendly neighborhood newspaper stand. He seems like a harmless blind man, but his past record tells a different story. He runs numbers on the side, but he doesn't have any trouble with the police until one of his customers is murdered by gunman after leaving his stand. Was Poppy involved in setting up the hit?
The police pull Poppy in to question him, but he won't talk. He wants no part of it, but the word on the street is that Poppy was involved. Now, "the syndicate" has put out a hit on him. The police tell Poppy that he is on his own; they have no reason to help him.
Without eyes to see who is after him, can Poppy navigate his way to safety?
