Jesse Harte’s father kills his entire family except for Jesse, who escapes. He is adopted by a Dr. Pedersen, a controlling parent who has alienated his own family. Although Jesse is eager to be a part of the Pedersen family (and forget his own, violent one), Dr. Pedersen ultimately rejects him in a family argument during which Jesse sides with Mrs. Pedersen. Jesse changes his last name to Vogel, and goes to medical school. He ultimately becomes a brain surgeon.
