There is nothing Elwood P. Dowd enjoys more than spending his days with his best friend Harvey.  The only problem is Harvey, a 6-foot tall invisible rabbit, whose mere “existence” has thrown Elwood’s sister Veta into a frenzy. In an effort to save the family’s reputation, Veta takes Elwood to the local sanitarium.  When the doctors mistakenly commit his anxiety-ridden sister, Elwood — and Harvey—slip away, setting off a hilarious chain of events as everyone in town tries to catch a man and his invisible rabbit.
