Two New York longshoremen—one white, one Black—find their budding friendship threatened by the white longshoreman's supervisor, a vicious racist. One of the first mainstream films to depict an interracial friendship, and one of the first films to depict an African American in a position of authority over a white man.

Set and shot on location in New York.
