- Synopsis / Plot
- After distinguishing himself as a midshipman in the British merchant marine, Jim rapidly rises to the rank of second in command of a ship. But because of a broken foot he ends in the Patna, a rusty tub manned by a third-rate crew transporting a group of Moslem pilgrims. During a severe storm, Jim abandons ship with the rest of the crew without even lowering the other lifeboat for the passengers. The fleeing crew are prepared to swear they saw the Patna sink with all its passengers; however, in what Jim believes is a cosmic joke upon himself, it is revealed that the Patma did not sink but had been salvaged by a French vessel... After being discredited as a coward, Jim lives for only one purpose: to redeem himself.
