Overview

Haute Couturiere Hope Chapman and her pessimistic assistant. Deslie, are about to file bankruptcy for their business when a great opportunity comes by. Can they turn a millionaire's daughter from ugly duckling to swan in three days, to attract the attention of rich Gregory Tarlton? But daughter Angela, is a real project-- almost irretrievably unattractive, totally wrapped up in her hobby, fish survival, and madly in love with the family butler. Then Gregory mistakes Hope for Angela and, Hope not realizing who he is, they fall madly in love with one another. But Gregory and Angela are set for a mutually unwanted marriage-- and everybody else is equally unhappy. Complications mount until finally true love unites the proper parties-- at least they hope it's proper-- because everybody may be related to everybody else!
