Plot – Some dockworkers in the port of New York are harassed by gangsters. The criminals impose a new contract to the employers but the dockworkers are denied the right salary. The one who rebels against them, will pay with life. Gangster Terry Mallory is better than his fellows because he feels a certain moral discomfort when he kills one dockworker. Thanks to a priest, Terry reports the gangsters' abuses and now he has to overcome not only his fellows' hatred but also dockworkers' one, who have judged badly Mallory's gesture.
