As a child, Anna Christie (Greta Garbo) was sent away by her father, Chris Christofferson (George F. Marion), to live with unkind relatives in Minnesota. Although she escaped her family, Anna fell into prostitution, and she still resents her father's decision. When Anna travels to New York to reunite with her father, she tries to keep her past a secret.
