Eric (David Niven) is a successful but high-strung pianist. His managers have forced him to focus all his attention on practicing and touring, and as a result he has few personal relationships. All this changes when he suddenly becomes the proprietor of a crumbling tenement in which he had previously invested. Eric decides to take a break from the road, move into the building and rub elbows with the wacky renters. And one beautiful leaser, Polly (Jane Wyman), helps bring him out of his shell.
