A play that, following its author's own style, has a background of social criticism. The doctor of a famous balneary, Dr. Thomas Stockmann, discovers that the sea waters are contaminated. As the poor people live from tourism, everyone will do their best to silence the doctor. In short, it is the well-known dilemma between telling the truth and money.
