This examination of the average Canadian citizen's role in the preservation of international peace opens with scenes of the United Nations in session. Mackenzie King and other Canadian representatives are shown presenting Canada's outlook to United Nations statesmen. The Secretary of State, Paul Martin, is shown addressing a group of naturalized Canadians on the rights and responsibilities their new citizenship entails. The film stresses that all treaties and agreements affecting the peace and well-being of the world's peoples are the concern of the Canadian citizen, for with freedom, he has inherited responsibilities.
