A small Norwegian town has just begun to win fame and wealth through its medicinal spring waters, having constructed a health spa to boost the economy. Dr. Stockmann, resident physician in charge, discovers that the waters are poisoned because town officials and the board of the corporation that built the spa did not heed his warning that improper construction could lead to contamination. On receiving proof of this, he immediately reports to his associates, and is shocked to find that he is looked upon as a dangerous crank who will destroy the town. When he is pressured to remain silent, the doctor must decide whether to obey or risk everything and speak the truth.
