The Story

An Enemy of the People is set in a small town in Norway. Dr. Thomas Stockmann is the town's respected scientist. He discovers that the water in the town's spa is contaminated. He tries to warn the town council and the public, but he is met with fierce opposition.

The town council is afraid that the news of the contamination will hurt the town's tourism industry. The public is skeptical of Stockmann's claims. They are afraid that he is trying to scare them into selling their property so that he can buy it up cheap.

Stockmann is outraged by the town's reaction. He believes that it is his duty to speak out about the contamination, even if it is unpopular. He gives a speech to the town council in which he accuses them of putting their own interests ahead of the health of the people.

The town council is furious. They expel Stockmann from the town. The public turns against him. He is labeled an enemy of the people.

Stockmann is eventually vindicated. The contamination is proven, and the town council is forced to resign. However, the experience has left him disillusioned with the people of his town.
