Synopsis:
An army doctor cares for a variety of patients, all of whom are traumatized by their wartime experiences. Sometimes military rules and regulations get in the way of his work -- but Doctor Newman isn't about to let that stop him from doing what he must to help his men recover. It's not all work and no play, however, for the good doctor enjoys the pranks of a high-spirited orderly, as well as a romance with a kind and lovely nurse.
