In this drama, a doctor must clear his name after his mistress is murdered. Of course, the married M.D. is the prime suspect in the case as the woman's body was found at the site of their frequent trysts. The media soon sensationalizes the case and the police decide that the doctor will take the fall, regardless of his innocence. Another murder occurs. As a result the doctor is cleared of wrong doing. Unfortunately he must now live within a community that spurns him, and a depressed wife who recently tried to kill herself.
