Summary
Reckless playboy Bob Merrick crashes his speedboat, requiring emergency attention from a rescue team. They have to use the town's only resuscitator. At that same moment the beloved, local doctor has a heart attack and dies while waiting for the life-saving device. When Bob learns about the doctor's secret - to give selflessly and in secret - he decides to give it a try. He alienates the doctor's widow, Helen, with whom Bob has now fallen in love. His persistence causes another tragedy, and he must remake his life
