Cole unwillingly agrees to take part in a hypnotist's stage show, leading to a series of comic adventures for the normally reserved bank clerk. Before the spell can be broken, Cole leaves the theater and begins to live a carefree existence. He cheats on his wife, frivolously spends his
bank's cash, and makes a general fool of himself. Just as he's on the brink of a marital breakup, he is snapped out of his dangerous lifestyle by the hypnotist.
