He is a shipyard worker. Now, he joins the merchant marine and it so happens that he has to travel by ship to the United States of America. He has to set out from England. The purpose of

      his journey is to meet his father, who is in America. He does not even know how his father looks like because he has never met his father before. So, he is eager to meet his father. Somehow, he comes to know that his father works at Princeton.

      Jude makes friendship with Max, who is a young man of Princeton and who is working as taxi-driver. They become good friends. And Max has a sister named Lucy. Jude and Lucy get attracted towards each other and this attraction turns out to be a romantic relationship.

      starts getting whereabouts of his father. So, does he succeed in meeting his father?

      There are many other characters in the movie. Such as Max, the friend of Jude and his fiancée. And there is one more couple. Thus there are many characters and the film is somewhat confusing. The story line is rather good, that is, we feel interested to watch that Jude sets out to meet his father about whom nothing

      is known. There is a mystery over it. But once he reaches America, the film turns out to be boring. Many characters start coming and unnecessary relationships are brought in whereas the major purpose of Jude, the finding out the whereabouts of his father, seems to be forgotten. It is only in the last part of the film that Jude gets whereabouts of his father. I will rate this movie 5 out of 10 points.
