Abstract:
This film tells the story of a man who has recovered from tuberculosis, and the prejudice and hardship he faces after he comes home. He expects to return to his regular employer, but is told there's no job for him. Old friends don't wish to socialize, and his daughter's acquaintances are reluctant to come to the house. The film makes the point that these attitudes are rooted in a misunderstanding of tuberculosis, its treatment, and a person's health status after being released from a sanitorium or hospital. Such patients are well, and should be given a fair chance to resume their former lives.
