~Plot Synopsis~
Sim Paris, having survived the war unscathed, returns home to England and finds that his elder
brother, Charles, is so engrossed in making money that he is losing the love of his wife; another
brother, who is caring for an invalided relative in expectation of a remembrance in the will, is also
losing his wife to the doctor who has been in attendance. The male nurse discovers her secret and
blackmails the wife. Paris thus returns to this state of affairs; and after visiting the home of a former
comrade and noting the happiness that prevails there, he believes that his mission in life is to
straighten out the lives of other people. With this purpose, he and his wife go throughout England
preaching the doctrine of unselfishness.
