As described in a film magazine, with the coming of their little son, Dr. Philip Emerson (Wallace) and his wife Hilda (Harris) drift slowly apart. The doctor spends most of his time at his work and permits his friend Peter Marvin (Holding) and Robert Livingston (Fisher), a lounge lizard, to occupy his wife's time. When Peter sees the trend of feeling between Hilda and Robert, he seeks to bring about a better understanding between the husband and wife. However, an epidemic of infantile paralysis absorbs the physician's time and he neglects his wife. When their own son is stricken, Hilda. believing her son has died, leaves his bedside. He is revived, and the father devotes every minute of his time for several weeks attempting to find a cure, but the child is hopelessly crippled. Peter finally brings about a meeting between Hilda and the child, and what science could not accomplish is done by love.
