Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

It is never clear whether Frigyes is indifferent or just confused when, shortly after emigrating to New York City from Hungary, he leaves his family for the pleasures and gratifications of being a street bum. But as time goes by, it is clear that, if he wasn't confused to start with, he is now. A series of adventures with other drifters reach a dramatic conclusion when some thugs murder one of them, but Frigyes himself is rescued by his father-in-law. Despite the fact that his in-law is fresh off the boat, as it were, he is somehow able to track down the by-now stunned and hapless Frigyes amid the endless streets and avenues of the Big Apple.
