While working on a novel about the occult, Charles Condomine decides to get a feel for the 'real thing' by inviting Madame Arcati, an eccentric medium, to hold a séance at his house. Her 'other-wordly' efforts inadvertently summon the ghost of his first wife, Elvira, who has been dead for seven years.
