In this tense Alfred Hitchcock thriller, based on a John Steinbeck novella, American and British civilians who have survived the sinking of their ship by a German submarine struggle to reach land in a crowded lifeboat.

Soon treachery ensues, and the population of the vessel gradually decreases as conflicts come to a head.
