Working man Gregson loses his job when vertigo attacks affect his performance at the shipyards. His drinking goes from an occasional mild bender to out-and-out drunkenness, which doesn't help the situation. Fortunately for the man, his young daughter (Ryan) is a stock plucky type. She
inspires her father after being picked to solo at a church festival and eventually helps him get a job with businessman Redmond. The emotional manipulation within the drama does its job effectively, though every trick shines through without shame. The performers' sincerity helps out, rising above
the largely unbelievable script.
