This is the story of Elwood P. Dowd who starts to introduce his imaginary friend Harvey, a six-and-a-half-foot invisible rabbit to guests at a party. His sister, Veta, has seen as much of his eccentric behavior as she can tolerate. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her daughter, Myrtle Mae, from future embarrassment.
Problems arise when Veta is mistakenly assumed to be on the verge of lunacy when she explains to doctors that living with Elwood's hallucination have caused her to see Harvey too! The doctors commit Veta instead of Elwood. But when the truth comes out, the search is on for Elwood and his invisible companion. When he arrives at the sanitarium looking for his lost friend Harvey, Veta realizes that maybe Harvey isn't so bad after all.
