A rabble rousing former trade union leader for dock workers finds himself unexpectedly appointed as a colonial governor, and sent to manage British affairs on a Mediterranean island. However, he soon finds he has more sympathy for the put-upon local workforce than his bosses in Westminster. Ealing comedy based on Adrian Alington's novel, starring Eric Portman and Cecil Parker.
