"The bulk of the film (340 feet) involves a fictional situation, where a farmer who was recently hospitalized for an appendix operation explains to his farmers' organization the existence and advantages of the Blue Cross plan. The film cuts often to flashbacks at the hospital, where he first learns of the plan. The various services of the plan are also illustrated. The second section - 75 feet - is a speech by Dr. F.W. Routley, the Secretary-Treasurer of the Ontario Hospital Association, who encourages group enrolment in the hospital insurance plan. Emphasis throughout is that the insurance allows one to keep one's 'self-respect' and avoid having to take charity in cases of sudden illness. Graham Fraser and Judith Crawley have short, non-speaking parts."
