The film tells the story of Norman Bethune, a Canadian doctor who was a partying wastrel until a bout with TB dramatically changed his attitude. He became dedicated with the goal of helping others both in the Spanish Civil War and in China where his ceaseless work to help the people of China in the beginning days of World War II made him an honoured hero in Communist China.
