'A Ship Bound for India' (1947) follows sailor Johannes Blom (Malmsten), who returns home from seven years at sea to find his love, Sally (Gertrud Fridh), in a state of utter despair. The origins of Sally's condition appear to stretch back to a series of incidents involving Blom's captain, Alexander (Holger Löwenadler), which the sailor will have to revisit if he wants to help Sally recover.
