As the captain of a freighter belonging to a family with money problems, Jurgens gets involved in a plot to blow up the ship to collect the insurance money. The plan is to sail to what is believed to be an active mine field and let the bombs do their work. Before Jurgens leaves Hamburg,

he places a time bomb in the ship's hold and sets it to go off when it reaches the alleged mine field. But this creates problems. One worker is trapped when a boiler burns up, forcing Jurgens to disconnect the bomb. And he is happy to do it because he never fully approved of the scheme. He then

sails back to Hamburg to discover that part of the family never liked the plan either. This film concentrates on the guilt that accompanies making a less-than-honest choice.
