A contemporary Cinderella story set in Greenwich Village reminiscent of the classic screwball comedies of the 1930s. Christopher, a shy and eccentric young electrologist, helps an elderly millionaire, Mr. Rosenberg, when the old man faints in the street. Rosenberg, touched by the young man’s generous spirit, becomes his benefactor and sends Christopher off to a fabulous charity ball where he meets his Prince Charming, in the form of a neurotic young publicist. Fate takes a turn when Mr. Rosenberg dies suddenly of a heart attack in Christopher’s electrologist chair, and he leaves half of his millions to Christopher. The other half of the estate goes to Rosenberg’s fiercely embittered daughter, Lenore, who threatens to contest the will. Christopher doesn’t stand a chance against the suburban matron from Hell until Mr. Rosenberg shows up as a ghost, seen only by Christopher. Christopher and Lenore plead their case on an Oprah Winfrey-like show hosted by Wanda Wang. Christopher, with the help of Mr. Rosenberg, triumphs on the Wanda Wang Show, keeps his millions and ultimately, even brings Lenore some peace with her late father.
