Set in the small town of Mesalia, Ohio in the weeks leading to Christmas in the late 1930s. The famously outlandish New York City radio personality Sheridan Whiteside ('Sherry’) is invited to of a well-to-do Factory owner’s home for dinner with him and his family. But before Whiteside can enter the house, he slips on a patch of ice outside the Stanleys' front door and injures his hip. Confined to the Stanleys' home, Sherry drives his hosts mad due to his erratic and ridiculous behavior, leaving the family and those who become involved looking for any way that they can drive him out.
