In 1930s London, American architect Peter Standish (Leslie Howard) grows obsessed with the details of his ancestor Peter, reading his diary and studying details of his inheritance. Noting that it is the 149th anniversary of the former Peter's arrival at the home of his intended, Peter is sure if he goes to the house at the same moment his ancestor did, he will travel back in time. When his prediction comes true, Peter finds himself in 1784, upsetting the household and possibly his own future.
