A discerning study of an immigrant family and the mingled feelings of hope and despair with which they begin life in a strange land. The film pictures the arrival of an Italian wife to rejoin her husband in a large Canadian city. After two years in Canada the husband feels his dream of a better life is close to realization, but his wife, far from her familiar village, feels that differences of language and custom are insuperable. How such feelings are dispelled by simple gestures of friendship from Canadian-born neighbours gives a heartening conclusion to the film.
