Hawkins is a newsman who is too devoted to his paper to take a much-needed vacation with his wife (Allan). Instead, he stays in the office and handles a number of interesting stories. The routine newsroom soap opera technique is neatly followed here, allowing for a substantial amount of

drama. The hot items of the day--four kids evicted from their home, a woman charged with mercy killing, and a drunken ex-reporter on the hunt for an atomic scientist--culminate with the story of a plane crash. Hawkins' wife, Allan, is listed as one of the passengers, but it turns out that she did

not take the plane. A lucid look behind the headlines at the people who get out the news.
