"The Able Seaman's Mate" follows the odyssey of a young Irish immigrant through the landscape of America at the turn of the twentieth century. Jimmy Delaney - willful, reflective, determined - is thrust into the hectic drive and conflict of American life, and his journey of discovery absorbs a cast of characters, places, exultation and tragedy and finally collides with a momentous event that tests him as nothing else could.
