Beautiful but lonely Londoner Maria Palmer (as Sylvia Ackroyd) signs permission to have evasive husband Robert Douglas (as Harrison Ackroyd) invest some of her money in a business deal. Then, he leaves for the evening, without remembering it's is his wife's 40th birthday. While she and maid Mollie Glessing (as Essie) rummage through the mementos in her basement, Ms. Palmer finds an old "Ouija" board, which she uses to summon an imaginary lover. After an investigation, Mr. Douglas wants to have his wife committed. But "Jeremy" may be the real deal…
