Description:
The film begins with a plea to the viewer to buy Christmas seals. In film graphics, the story of a young man named Rodney is told. Rodney walks through his town and visits his physician for a yearly physical examination. An X-ray suggests tuberculosis. Further tests are done, and the diagnosis is confirmed. The doctor outlines the process of infection and the population at risk. The necessity of rest cure is explained. Rodney is shown in a tuberculosis sanitorium as his physician tells him that tuberculosis can be cured in any climate with rest and proper food. Rodney's family and close friends have been tested for tuberculosis and found uninfected. Graphics show the therapeutic collapsing of a lung to rest it in tuberculosis treatment. Rodney's progress in the sanitorium and his return to his hometown are shown.
