The tempestuous love affair between a young surgeon and a pretty but married nurse provides the basis for this melodrama. The nurse would much rather be with the good doctor as she is married to a wretched alcoholic but she cannot bear to leave her husband in his hour of need. Later the surgeon falls in love with a wealthy young woman. Shortly after removing her appendix in emergency surgery, they get married. Unfortunately, the new wife hates her husband's devotion to his career and begins nagging him. He finally gives in and takes her out on the town. Meanwhile the nurse's drunken husband has a medical emergency. Unfortunately, the surgeon is not there to save him. Fortunately, the husband's death frees the would-be lovers to follow their hearts, but not before the surgeon divorces his wife first.
