When rambunctious Brooklyn nightclub entertainer Buzzy Bellew is killed after witnessing a murder committed by gangster 'Ten Grand' Jackson, he returns as a ghost to persuade his meek twin brother Edwin Dingle to avenge his death and help bring the killer to justice. To do this, Edwin takes on his brother's identity, meaning he must take to the club stage while looking out for Jackson's hitmen.
