Life on the ward of an NHS sanatorium, where one measure of health is to take a walk around the flowerbed in the gardens. The assorted TB patients include a tough Welsh miner who refuses to believe he is really ill, a sensitive orphan who writes poetry, a ladies' man, a chess player and a quiet man whose girlfriend may have decided to leave him. Some of the men develop crushes on some of the nurses and try to woo them.
