A depiction of the wrongful exploitation of human tragedies by the news media as told through the story of Howard, a college newspaper photographer, who captures stills of a woman jumping to her death from an eleven-story building. Realizing what the dangers and emotional damage would be of having these pictures published, Howard attempts to keep them out of the public eye. However, Howard's story-hungry editor, Alex, learns of these pictures and seeks to print them on the front page of the newspapaer, knowing that this will tremendously advance his career.
