Synopsis

Based on the novel To Have and Have Not by Ernest Hemingway, The Breaking Point brings together actors John Garfield and Patricia Neal in a classic film noir.

A captain of a charter boat finds himself in financial difficulty and is drawn into illegal activities so that he can keep up the payments on the boat. The desperate captain agrees to smuggle Chinese refugees into the US but not all is well.
