United States USA Date:1940 Duration:5 min 37 sec Sound:Yes
Following the death of a mother during childbirth, one of the attending physicians (Dr. O'Donnell) walks along rainy Chicago streets at night mulling over the event. He walks past numerous decorated shop windows highlighting the good life, and thinks aloud about the details of the event. Traffic moves along the streets as life goes on in the city. Dr. O'Connell wonders whether the mother's life could have been saved. He speculates about the event comprising an exchange of the mother's life for that of her child. He discusses the matter philosophically with a senior colleague, who encourages him to take up obstetrics and to practice in the slums of Chicago, where there are great needs for such services.
