Synopsis:
Ruth clings to a boat in a stormy sea while her father (Michael Craig) swims out in a desperate attempt to save her. He is too late and she is flung from the boat onto the nearby rocks, bleeding and unconscious. Arriving at the hospital, he and his wife are told she needs an urgent blood transfusion in order to live, but her father will not consent to this on religious grounds. His wife (Janet Munro) tries to convince him to change his mind but it is too late - Ruth has died. Infuriated, the doctor (Patrick McGoohan) brings charges against the father, and the emotionally-charged issue creates rifts and heals wounds before a conclusion is reached.
