Brief synopsis

Italiano:

Dopo aver salvato da un pestaggio Arturo, giovane rampollo della borghesia industriale, il marinaio Martin Eden viene ricevuto in casa della famiglia del ragazzo e qui conosce Elena, la bella sorella di Arturo, e se ne innamora al primo sguardo. La giovane donna, colta e raffinata, diventa non solo un'ossessione amorosa ma il simbolo dello status sociale cui Martin aspira a elevarsi. A costo di enormi fatiche e affrontando gli ostacoli della propria umile origine, Martin insegue il sogno di diventare scrittore e – influenzato dal vecchio intellettuale Russ Brissenden – si avvicina ai circoli socialisti, entrando per questo in conflitto con Elena e con il suo mondo borghese...
