His parents act fast to save him from possible conscription in the German army. Soon he is on a steamship bound for America. As his ship passes the Statue of Liberty, Sam vows to be a gift to her in this new country. But with his thick German accent will he be welcomed, and will he be able to overcome the guilt that torments him for leaving his family behind in Berlin?
