Following the wedding of his daughter Kay (Elizabeth Taylor), attorney Stanley Banks (Spencer Tracy) reflects on the day he was told of his daughter's engagement to Buckley Dunstan (Don Taylor) three months earlier. This announcement made Stanley uncomfortable, but he soon found that his daughter had reached marriageable age. However, while Ellie (Joan Bennett), Stanley's wife, begins preparations for Kay's wedding, he stays awake at night, fearing for his daughter's future. Stanley's obsession with his daughter's fate makes him the protagonist of a series of comic-tragic situations.
