The life of humanitarian Albert Schweitzer (André Wilms) is given a more critical slant in this story behind his missionary hospital. Schweitzer moves with his wife, Helene (Marisa Berenson), from Alsace, France, to Gabon, Africa, where he establishes a hospital to treat the natives. However, while Schweitzer's medical exploits are noble, he is unreceptive to the culture and heritage of the Africans -- a conflict manifested in his icy relationship with one of his doctors, Koumba (Alex Descas).
