This film dramatizes transmission of malaria and shows diagnosis and control of malaria outbreaks in an unnamed American town. The story begins with a soldier home from the tropics who has been infected with malaria while on duty. He begins to feel better, so does not continue with his prescribed medication. Bitten by mosquitoes at home, which then bite others, he unwittingly helps to spread the disease. Town leaders and physicians are shown discussing and diagnosing the outbreak, and taking measures to rid the town of Anopheles.
