Storyline

Dr. Tannen, who runs a private clinic, is incensed when a young patient of his dies because a larger hospital wouldn't accept him, and publicly blames the other hospital for the boy's death. This makes him the defendant of a libel suit, for which he hires his friend Owen to defend him. Owen tries to get the doctor to retract his statements, but he steadfastly refuses, insisting on a trial, even though he's deathly ill himself and the strain could possibly kill him.
