Elwood P. Dowd wants to introduce you to his friend, you can't see him? He's a 6ft 3.5" tall rabbit, and his name is Harvey. Elwood and Harvey are best friends, they do everything together, they run errands, they meet people, and they hangout at bars and drink. They really like to drink. Although Harvey and Elwood are close, Harvey has not always been in Elwood's life, and Elwood's family is unsure if Harvey is a result of excessive drinking (which Elwood admits to) or of mental illness.

Elwood's sister Veta acknowledges Harvey, yet tries to help Elwood rid of him by committing him to a sanitarium, but ends up getting herself committed instead.  When the doctor realizes his terrible mistake a wild goose-chase ensues to track down Elwood, return Veta home, and to get the bottom of Harvey's existence.  In the process of attempting closure on Harvey, Elwood's niece falls for an employee of the sanitarium, the doctor rekindles a fizzled romance with his nurse and Veta slowly becomes aware that she does believe in Harvey, who if it were not for, none of this would have come to be.

In a last effort to save Elwood's sanity, a serum is produced. With it's injection he will lose Harvey, and also his wondrous outlook on life and his natural ability to make people love and trust him. It then becomes a battle of which Elwood to keep, the one who functions in a normal society without the aide of  giant rabbit at his side or the Elwood with Harvey, who is essentially over 6ft of what Elwood is.
