Summary

Dramatised public information film on tuberculosis prevention.

A young pilot is involved in a car accident and meets a girl who works as a model. She leaves her fiancé for him and applies for a job as an airline stewardess. During a medical check up, she turns out to have tuberculosis, just like her younger brother. The pilot leaves her but her ex comes to see her in hospital and later marries her. Their happiness is blighted by the death of their small baby, also from tuberculosis. It turns out that her grandfather has been the source of the contagion. Meanwhile, the pilot's careless lifestyle has also resulted in tuberculosis but he is duly cured after a period of rest.
