Idealistic architect Howard Roark (Gary Cooper) is warned by his peers that his unconventional ideas and uncompromising approach will win him few friends or contacts as his career progresses, but he is determined to stand his ground. When a housing project on which he worked is drastically altered, Roark blows the proposed site to smithereens with explosives, and is subsequently brought to trial. Despite the seriousness of his situation, Roark refuses to accept that he has done anything wrong, and presents his own defence to an incredulous judge and jury.
