Sylvie is fascinated by the portrait of long dead Alain de Francigny. Upset when her father, Baron Eduard, is forced to sell the painting, the Baron hires an actor to appear as Alain’s ghost on the eve of Sylvie’s 16th birthday. Two admirers of Sylvie decide to also appear as ghosts. All this annoys the actual ghost of Alain de Francigny and he too makes an appearance.
