Synopsis

Stephen Cole, a London insurance executive in Ireland on business, learns that his boss's nephew, Oscar, has received the promotion he himself expected. Cole writes a letter of resignation accusing his boss of nepotism. After posting the protest, however, he is informed that he has been promoted to vice president and has been made a junior partner. Danny O'Toole, an executive with a rival firm which has attempted to recruit Cole for O'Toole's position, and Katie O'Connell, a postal clerk, accompany Cole on an unsuccessful chase after the letter. In the process, the trio become entangled in postal red tape and encounter the police; as a result, Katie loses her job. They hire a rickety plane owned by a pilot to take them to London, where Cole tries to retrieve the letter. To his horror, he discovers that it has already been intercepted and read by Oscar, who plans to give it to his uncle at a banquet in Cole's honor. Although Oscar places the letter before his uncle at the testimonial dinner, Katie creates a diversion, during which Cole replaces the letter with one written by O'Toole, which reveals that Cole has refused a job with the rival firm at twice his present salary. Oscar is praised for his selflessness, Cole for his loyalty, and O'Toole retains his position. Cole then dances off with Katie, his new secretary and romantic interest.
