On a cold and dreary Christmas Eve, a tired old freighter enters a fogbound seaport. Deep in its hold, a stowaway is hiding. After nightfall, he tries to make it to dry land by sliding down a rope, but is paralysed with fear. Profoundly melancholy in its expressive and richly textured imagery, Stowawayis adapted from a story by the Portuguese writer José Rodrigues Miguéis about one man's agonizing struggle for freedom.
