Most of the scenes unfold on the First Class deck or among the upper middle-class passengers, but the ship is carrying displaced workers, far more than the ship is certified to carry and they're assigned to squalid conditions in steerage. They are all being deported back to Spain by the order of the Cuban dictator, Machado. Many passengers bound for Nazi Germany are happy, some are apprehensive, while others downplay the Album) of fascist politics. The ship's medic, Dr. Schumann, takes a special interest in La Condesaa countess from Cuba who has an opiate addiction which he reluctantly accommodates with prescriptions.
She is being transported to a Spanish prison on the Canary Island of Tenerife. Her sense of doom is contrasted with the doctor's initial determination to fight the forces of oppression, embodied by his insistence that the people in steerage be treated like human beings rather than cargo. The doctor conceals having a heart condition. His sympathy for the countess soon evolves into love, though both realize it is a hopeless passion.

Some are amused and others offended by the anti-Semitic rants of a German businessman named Rieber who — though married — begins an affair with Lizzi.

Bill Tenny is a former baseball player with a drinking problem, angry the way his career never took off. Passengers are entertained nightly by a troupe of flamenco musicians and dancers, whose leader pimps the women in the troupe, while other passengers regularly drink themselves to oblivion.
One young heir to a fortune loses his virginity to one of the flamenco dancers, who treats him with gentleness. The ship arrives in Spain where the displaced workers from steerage disembark. Here, after an emotionally painful farewell with the doctor, La Condesa is forced to exit the ship under Civil Guard escort. Upon arrival in Germany, the remaining passengers depart the ship.
The doctor dies before the ship reaches Bremerhaven and his body is unloaded in a coffin. At Album) disembarkation, which seems like a parade, most characters show they will behave as though it is 'business as usual.
