Description

Josef von Sternberg's first picture is years ahead of its time. A simple story of three lost souls, an unemployed ambitionless family who live on a river barge until a procurer offers them a room in exchange for the wife's services. Only when the scabrous villain mistreats their child does the husband recover his self-respect sufficiently to face up to the man.
