One day, after observing a children's toy, Laennec discovers the principle of the transmission of sound through wood and applies it to a major medical instrument of his invention, the stethoscope. On the other hand, he wins a first victory over consumption by saving Jacquemine, a childhood friend, who soon becomes his wife.
