Tony, a vigorous young athlete, is about to be discharged from the men's ward. In contrast, the other two occupants are a terminally ill youth, Dave, and Walton, a middle-aged patient about to undergo surgery for a brain tumor. When Tony leaves, Walton introduces Dave to the concept of eternity by looking at the stars. Walton dies during the operation and the play ends with Dave, alone, contemplating the stars.
