In the 1930s, a meek and lonely woman who suffers the indignation of an unfaithful husband, escapes by spending her days in the local movie theatre, where she becomes enraptured by the characters on screen. One day the character Tom Baxter jumps off the screen and falls in love with her. Now, other Tom Baxters are coming off the screens in other theaters, and the studio is clamoring to have them back.
