George Putnam narrates standing in front of a map of the U.S., using large title cards to establish each topic. He argues that moral decay is spreading in this country: pornography, smut peddlers, salacious magazines and paperback books, fetishists, corrupters of children, nudists, and homosexuals. The motive, profit - it's a $2 billion per year industry.

At the film's end, he answers the question "What can an individual do?" with six suggestions, including promoting good reading to children.
