In the closing months of World War II, phony spiritualist Adelaide Winters (Kim Hunter) has come up with a cruel but successful new racket. Preying upon the grieving parents of deceased servicemen, Adelaide claims to have the power to communicate with the spirits of the dead soldiers. Adelaide's elaborate forays into the next world so impresses one of her clients, wealthy Edward Porter (John Larkin), that he proposes marriage to her. Adelaide accepts, greedily anticipating a life of luxury and ease -- blissfully unaware that Mr. Porter has a morbid "crossover" plan all his own.
