Three wealthy heads of an engineering firm (Harry Carry Sr., C. Aubrey Smith & Charles Winninger) decide to do a little matchmaking. Growing older and lamenting the lonely existence brought on by the demands of business, the bored trio concocts a plan to invite two strangers over to their mansion for Christmas dinner (Richard Carlson & Jean Parker). Soon enough the strangers become friendly with the wealthy matchmakers. A tragic plane crash however takes the lives of the trio, leaving the couple to carry on by themselves. In time, circumstances conspire to come between the couple and it is at this point that trio comes back into the picture as ghosts.
