A prominent engineer battles against bureaucratic ineptitude when he recommends a costly project be shelved. His career is put in jeopardy when he attends a meeting in Moscow. He also is troubled because his son wants to quit school to be with an unwed mother. His wife leaves him when she questions his loyalty to the Communist Party ideology. His son elopes with the girl, after the father has searched for his son with the girl's former roommate. The man is somewhat vindicated when at a media conference with the American press his proposals are accepted by an impartial source who blasts the bureaucracy for their over-spending and lack of foresight
