Silva Ring is a world famous singer with a severe hang up about her age. When a Swedish interviewer produces her true birth certificate, she resorts to increasingly desperate measures to prove him wrong. With help from her long term housekeeper Dolores, Silva pretends to be her own sister Iris, a tough lady who can make tough decisions. Silva's lover, a footballer, her agent and Dolores all suffer from the iron rule of Iris. Lola Wales, an old singer, is brought in to be an aunt and a petty forger is persuaded to attempt to destroy Silva's files at the Family Record Center. After a wild climax during which Silva scores a goal at Wembley Stadium, she can no longer juggle all her lies and subterfuges and escapes by having a bogus nervous breakdown. A victim of fame and wealth, she wins in the end and emerges stronger than ever.
