Margot Buchanan is a witty ex-actress in a retirement home. She is visited by a young actress who is having an affair with Leo, Margot’s ex-husband and by Leo’s current wife Judy. Leo arrives but suffers a fatal heart attack. Thus the scene is set for chaotic hilarity as Leo’s ghost appears, anxious to sort out matters between the three women, and visible only to Margot’s psychic friend Freda.
