After blacking out from an all-night drinking binge, dock worker Bobo wakes up in a decrepit shack on a San Pablo Bay barge. The barge's owner, fisherman Takeo, comes by to remind him how they met the previous night, and that he agreed to work for Takeo. Bobo does not remember the encounter and intends to leave. A police boat passes and, hearing that they are searching for the murderer of local bar-fly Pop Kelly, who was strangled to death sometime during Bobo's drinking spree, causes Bobo to put the brakes on his plans to go. He is afraid he may have killed the man, due to the drunken violence he has been capable of in the past. He takes the job on the barge, then goes into town to meet up with his friends, Tiny and Nutsy, the town watchman and amateur philosopher at a local boardinghouse. Despite Tiny's assurances that he didn't hurt anyone, Bobo worries.
