Synopsis

An early 'quota quickie' by Michael Powell, one half of 'The Archers' team that went on to create some of the most imaginative British films ever made. In this drama, set in the depressed shipyards of Clydeside, a shipbuilder plans a new cargo vessel but suffers a setback when the board of his company refuses him the necessary funds to build it. Undaunted by their lack of vision, he presses ahead using his own fortune but is forced to resort to forgery when his cash runs out.
