Director Satsuo Yamamoto wields his sarcastic scalpel in this message movie that takes jabs at the practices of the medical profession. The film begins with a surgeon cutting a patient from his sternum to his navel before revealing the stomach and bowels. A noted surgeon is more interested in publicity photos and press releases than his oath to heal. Another jealous doctor sabotages the career of a gifted young physician to advance his own career. The theme of the film was used once again in the 1970 black comedy The Hospital.
