This film chronicles the outbreak of syphilis in the early 1900’s. The estimate at the time was one in twenty adults suffered from syphilis.  The target audience for this film was religious and civic groups. There are no graphic depictions of symptoms on the genitals, which were very characteristic of the films targetting men during this era.  The overall message of the film is prevention through education.
