Charles “Chuck” Lumley, formerly a successful stockbroker, has found a refuge from the ulcer-inducing Wall Street rat race in his job as an attendant at a New York City morgue. His displeasure at being “promoted” to night-shift supervisor to make room for his boss’ nephew Leonard is exacerbated by the irrational exuberance of Bill “Blaze” Blazejowski, his new co-worker. They are inspired by the plight of Chuck’s prostitute neighbor, Belinda, to apply Chuck’s financial acumen and Bill’s entrepreneurial spirit to open a prostitution service headquartered at the morgue.

Chuck falls in love with Belinda, but their relationship becomes complicated when Belinda refuses to quit prostitution. Chuck’s passiveness keeps him from telling Belinda he loves her. Meanwhile, Chuck and Bill’s foray into the prostitution business draws the ire of dangerous pimps who come to the morgue and threaten to kill Chuck. Bill inadvertently leads two undercover police officers to the morgue where Chuck is being assaulted by the pimps. A shootout ensues. Chuck and Bill are rescued, but are arrested for promoting prostitution. Because their arrest would be a political embarrassment, the two men are offered their old jobs back and a dismissal of all charges. Chuck accepts this, but Bill sees it as an opportunity to bargain with the mayor’s office. Chuck and Bill fight and part ways. Chuck’s fiancée Charlotte ends their engagement.
