"John Doe," a genial and aimless tramp, is hoaxed into protesting against existing social evils as a newspaper circulation stunt. He pleas to the "little man" for brotherly love and democratic good will. Because of his simple sincerity, he becomes a national hero; John Doe clubs are formed and a spontaneous movement begins. John Doe is shocked when he discovers that it's all a plot by the owner of the paper, who plans to use the voting strength of the clubs to bludgeon his way to power. John Doe's resulting fight for democracy has a timeless, inspiring message for all Americans.
