In this prison drama, a physician ends up incarcerated after he treats a long-time patient who was a fugitive convict. As soon as he gets there, the doctor tries to get on the medical staff, but the head doctor will not allow it. When a prisoner's visiting wife goes into labor, the doctor is asked to assist. He thereby earns the staff doctor's respect until a prison break occurs and the convicted doctor is blamed. Fortunately it is straightened out and the doctor earns his parole.
