“The absorbing story of three new settlers told against the background of New Zealand’s Southern Alps.”

Journey for Three is a dramatised documentary featurette on immigration released theatrically in Britain.

“The adventures of three British immigrants - two girls and a man - to New Zealand. The girls settle down quite soon, one as a nurse, the other as a factory worker; the man, an engineer, finds himself out of his element, ill at ease, disliking his companions, and has almost determined to leave when he goes out on a relief party up the mountains to rescue a climber who has broken his leg at the head of a glacier. The rigours of the climb solve his personal problems - he decides he likes New Zealanders after all, in spite of their differences to Britons...” Monthly Film Bulletin, 1950.
