Lucy, whose mother died of tuberculosis and who has been living and working on her aunt's farm, is found to have advanced tuberculosis. She is fearful of the sanatorium, since her mother died in one. The local Tuberculosis Association swings into action to persuade her that the sanitorium is the best course for her, and Lucy is helped by capable doctors, sympathetic nurses, rest, and nutritious food. While there, she recovers her health, makes a close friend, gets her high school diploma, and plans a career in fashion design. She is eventually cured of the disease and released.
