Talented and beautiful Carol Williams (Sally Forrest) is devestated when she learns she has contracted Polio and becomes crippled by the disease. The depressed and embittered young woman breaks her engagement to her dance partner and choreographer, Guy Richards (Keefe Brasselle), but he is determined to stay by her side. Preferring to be alone in her misery, Carol slowly learns to allow others to help her and share in her grief. She is finally able to bring herself to participate in and go on with her new life.
