Wallace Cook, a writer for Everywhere Magazine, suggests that his editor should run an article about small-town girl Hazel Flagg, purportedly dying from exposure to radium. Cook invites her to New York City for an interview. After accepting she discovers that she was misdiagnosed but, eager to visit the big city, decides not to reveal the truth and becomes a media darling embraced by a public deeply moved by her sad story.
