After Jean Thatcher has been injured in a car accident, her father, Judge Thatcher, and beau, Jerry implore retired surgeon, Dr. Richard Vollin to perform a delicate operation to restore her to health.

But a personal visit by Judge Thatcher, who frantically relates to him that in the opinion of Vollin’s former hospital colleagues, only Vollin has the brilliance to perform the operation successfully, eventually pleases his vanity enough to change his mind; he saves her life. He befriends the spirited and ...
