Plot synopsis
Professor Douel is a talented scientist, a follower of the “science for the sake of science” school, and not interested in the practical application of scientific discoveries. His former student and present assistent, Dr. Korn, is a magnificent surgeon, a good organiser and an unprincipled, cynical businessman. He engineers a car accident to get hold of the brains of his teacher and starts to exploit his professor’s intellect.
