Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
A lad from the countryside moves into the city to try and earn money for his family. He has been forced to do this because work is scarce in the countryside, and all the available land has been bought up by the rich. He finds a job driving a taxi and shares this work with three people: a new friend, a young man with an optimistic air and the young mans' girlfriend, who he intends to marry. The girl's family want to sell her into servitude rather than allowing her to marry, and when she objects, they beat and kill her boyfriend. This throws the boy from the country into a quandary: should he stay in the city, brutal as it is, or take his chances back in the country.
