What begins as a doctor patient relationship develops into a full blown romance in this charming love story set on the Baltic coast. Rodion, chief surgeon at a sanitorium, is a crusty widower. Lidya's life has been varied and unhappy. An actress, she lost a son and left the stage, remarried a musical clown and joined the circus, and was deserted by her second husband.

Mary Martin returned to Broadway as Lidya with Anthony Quayle as Rodion.
