Set Dublin in 1941, whilst war is raging in continental Europe.
A play for post-primary school students.
In the slums of the inner city a young doctor starts work, unprepared for the problems that confront him - squalor, disease, hunger, death. The scale of the suffering threatens to overwhelm him when suddenly, miraculously, he is given the means to change people's lives for the better. That's when his real difficulties start.
