In late December 1947, American sea captain Mike Francis Dillon steers his boat toward the Palestinian shoreline, where he is to unload a group of illegal Jewish immigrants. To ensure that the immigrants' leader pays the $8,000 owed to him, cynical Mike insists on going ashore with the others. Once all of the immigrants have safely disembarked on the deserted beach and boarded waiting trucks, Mike is paid and is asked to make additional trips. Mike declines, reminding the leader of the group that he agreed to the blockade run, only because he had lost his scheduled cargo in Italy. Just as Mike and his boatswain are about to return to their vessel, a British patrol boat approaches. Mike, his boatswain, David and Jerry McCarthy, an Irishman fighting with the Jews, hide among some reeds, but are soon discovered by the British troops.
