Aside from making no sense, poor writing and dumb characters, the film isn't all that bad!
When the film begins, Nadine (Anna Sten) is working hard practicing for her citizenship exam. She desperately wants to become a US citizen. However, when her boss, the Professor, is murdered, the police inexplicably blame her and are going to deport her!
Soon she's on a train headed to New York for the deportation and along are a host of other deportees including a one-dimensional communist and a gangster. You know that SOMETHING bad will prevent the train from arriving in New York--either other gangsters or spies will soon be arriving. Soon Nadine and a very stereotypical reporter are off the train--running cross country while being chased by evil folks.
This film is obviously a very low-budget B-movie. Like many Bs, this one was hastily written and has a few broad and annoying characters and isn't especially enjoyable. It also makes very little sense most of the time. It's obvious that realism is NOT a strong point in this movie! Overall, the film offers few flashes of brilliance and is, at best, a time-passer.
