Charles Brown can't find a job because he has a criminal record. Day after day he answers the want ads, but employers will not hire an ex-convict because they regard him with suspicion. Doubts and fears beset Charles--he is sincere in his desire to work at the trade he learned in prison and yet society will not believe him. Finally, the John Howard Society steps in, securing a job for him where he can take his place in society and regain his self-respect.
