This is one of six films made by RKO starring the fine character actor, Jean Hersholt, based on the Dr. Christian radio series in 1937 on NBC radio that lasted for 16 years.

Dr. Christian, a kindly, gentle, wise, small-town physician who ministers to ailments physical and emotional, has a practice in a small Minnesota town. When John Hewitt becomes the Mayor of River's End he seeks to transform the small town into a bustling metropolitan suburb. Dr. Christian supports Mayor Hewitt until it becomes clear the Mayor is more concerned with tourist revenues and new highways than building a much needed hospital and aiding the poor and helpless. Having seen one too many simple operations become medical emergencies due to the lack of proper equipment, Dr. Christian publicly criticizes the Mayor, and rallies his fellow citizens to demand a more progressive agenda for River's End. But the town's mayor has other plans and ignores Dr. Christian until the good doctor performs a delicate operation on the mayor's daughter.
