In May 1953, Dick and Millie Boyce stumble onto a house hosting a strange New Year's party celebrating the arrival of 1957. After they leave, the house is struck by a plane. They run to the nearest home to report the incident, but when they return there is no evidence of the crash. Years later they are going to a New Year's party at the same house! They get all the people out before the plane, again, crashes into it.
