For a number of generations, men have done as they please - and women have done as men pleased. Not so for San Francisco socialite Arden Stuart (Greta Garbo). To be fulfilled, she wants the freedom men have to take - or leave - love where they find it. So she embarks on a sensual seafaring odyssey with a boxer-turned-artist who declares, "There are many theories about love, but only one answer: equality and perfect freedom." But can any woman be free without paying a terrible price? In this daring late silent, the divine Garbo is ideally cast playing a character in many ways like herself: unconventional, independent, desired. And look for an in-joke Garbo fans will love - the name of the yacht is All Alone.
