  • The intolerant inhabitants of a seaside town ostracize an introverted young woman, branded a simpleton because of her refusal to relate to uncaring townsfolk, and her lover, a shipwrecked, unkempt Ukrainian man, considered to be equally dim. When the two misfits marry and have a son, the townspeople unite in an effort to undermine their happiness. Based on Joseph Conrad's short story "Amy Foster."
