Synopsis

After World War II, veteran George Hoskins persuades his skipper, Bill Randall, to use their old naval ship for a small-time smuggling operation. But the nefariousness of their activities soon increases, and the men begin shipping dangerous weapons. Around that time, the ship begins to revolt against the veterans that it led through the war, breaking down at inopportune moments, almost as if to express its disapproval.
