This powerful drama examines the question of religious freedom and how it may cause harm to others. Little Lynne Taylor is hurt in a boating accident and taken to a hospital. Her parents, Craig and Munro, are informed that only a blood transfusion will save her life. However, Craig forbids

the procedure because his religion does not allow believers to be operated on by doctors. Munro, who has tolerated her husband's religious convictions throughout their marriage, is outraged and returns to the hospital to grant the doctor, McGoohan, permission to proceed with the transfusion.

Unfortunately, the go-ahead comes too late and the girl dies. McGoohan, an agnostic, decides to press manslaughter charges against Craig and the matter soon ends up in the courts. Munro leaves Craig and he is befriended by a Jewish lawyer, Rogers, who volunteers to defend him. After a lengthy and

emotional trial, Craig is eventually acquitted. Though a free man, he has been forced to question his faith and realizes that it was a mistake to put so much trust in God to perform miracles. Deeply depressed and blaming himself for his daughter's death, Craig attempts suicide. McGoohan reaches

out to the grieving father and helps him face life. Munro also returns to Craig, realizing that she still loves him and that he needs her now more than ever.
