The story of the Joad family and their flight from the dust bowl of Oklahoma to California. The journey is wrought with intolerance, exploitation, death and terrible deprivation before reaching their destination - where their waning hopes are dealt a final blow by the stark realities of the Great Depression. A deeply moving affirmation of the indomitability of the human spirit and of the essential strength that - then as now - resides in the hearts and minds of the "common man" throughout the world.
