Angus Baily wrote and directed this social drama starring members of the New England Community Theatre group from Fall River, Massachusetts. Alfred (Ray Bernier) is an immigrant from Quebec who has worked in the textile factory since he was 16. When one of the two factories in town closes, he and his wife and child are left without an income. Alfred takes to the bottle and uncharacteristically slaps his wife, who promptly leaves him. He borrows a friend's car so he can return to the place where he experienced his happy childhood.
