Peter Finch plays Dr. Alec Windom, a British medico working in the remote Far Eastern island village of Selim. Feeling a strong bond with the natives, Dr. Windom champions their cause during a tense period of romantic upheaval. Eventually, he is forced to quell a native uprising--and to try to convince the colonial government and the local plantation owners to extend a measure of independence and dignity to the long-suffering islanders. Mary Ure costars as Windom's estranged wife, who comes to realize that her husband's "way" is the right one, while Natasha Parry plays a native nurse who harbors an unrequited love for the doctor. Windom's Way is based on a novel by James Ramsay Ullman.
