A young engineer goes to visit his cousin at a tubercular sanatorium in the Swiss Alps intending to stay three weeks, but ends by staying on for seven years to observe the disturbed personnel and patients. The unfolding exchanges between the protagonists are meant to present a microcosm of the society of pre-World War I Europe in this dramatization based on a Nobel Prize-winning novel.
