Abstract:

"[The film's] political argument is hung on a credibility-straining family melodrama featuring an industrialist who shuns photographic evidence put before him by an NCLC investigator (who is unobstrusively gathering information at the far left in the opening shot). The industrialist's wife, by contrast is shocked and sympathetic. When their young daughter gets lost during a train trip through a factory town (the location was Paterson, New Jersey), she's taken in by an immigrant family--probably meant to be Italian--that has found mill work only for their elder daughter. The lost child, too, joins the workforce, and 'fate' leads the industrialist, after he buys the mill, to unknowingly become his daughter's employer"--Film notes by Scott Simmon.
