George Dupont, the son of a wealthy family, is about to be married to a girl he adores. When he discovers he has a disease that he can easily pass on to innocent people, he convinces himself that his social standing in the upper class of Chicago exempts him from making any personal sacrifices for the good of others. His decision not to tell his beloved new bride changes the course of his life and new family and has consequences for those around him.
