A young doctor returns to his New England home town after a long absence. He visits with the town's kindly old physician, Dr. Cook, a man he has admired since childhood. However, he soon finds out that the old doctor isn't quite what he seems to be, and the young doctor finds his life in danger.
Good, kindly Dr. Cook loves his patients and his plants. But there are two things he can't abide - imperfect plants and imperfect people.
