Description: A young man who has left the countryside to come to the city, earns his keep by pulling a little cart around, delivering small items for merchants and others. One day he helps the manager of a textile factory deliver some items to his home, and the wealthier man befriends him because he is from the same part of the countryside as he is. This puts him in a position to observe what happens next, for the manager is caught between his exploitative and cruel boss and the workers in the factory, and his sympathies lie with the workers.~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
