Medical student Lamour gets engaged to schoolmate Howard while in the class of well-respected professor Tamiroff, who convinces her to return to her native China and let Howard continue with his studies undistracted. She splits, but Howard follows. Once in the Orient he is injured in a
bomb blast in a makeshift hospital, and Tamiroff is called on to perform a chancy operation. An unbelievable plot is pulled off in an acceptable manner thanks to the fine acting of the three leads.
