Can Louis Pasteur's dog vaccine save young Joseph Meister from a horrible death from rabies? Or will the boy die in spite of Pasteur's efforts and put the scientist at risk of being hanged for murder? Beginning with this pivotal scene, Louis Pasteur traces the story of Pasteur's career, including his amazing discovery that germs cause disease and his development of vaccines for rabies and anthax.
