Makes me think more of Kung Fu
or The Fugitive
. Helping random strangers, then moving on. In Kung Fu
, he kept on the move because he was searching for his missing brother. In The Fugitive
, it was because, well, he was a fugitive!
So make your protagonist a psychologist/hypnotist. He is falsely accused of murder or something, is on the lam, but is able to hypnotize people into helping him out as he searches the world for the one-balled-man who was the real killer.
