Martin Arrowsmith is a young doctor fresh out of medical school and working with Professor Gutley on prevention of disease, tracking down the microbe and finding out what will wipe it out. He practices his experiments on sick animals, cattle with blackleg by injecting his serum in half the animals to see if it works and then knows that it does when the untreated half die. His success leads to a job in New York with some leading scientists in an experimental laboratory but later they want him to perform his experiments on sick people.
