Grace is a warmhearted girl who constantly compares her life to heroines in old movies. Grace's boss, Walter, hopes their working relationship will blossom into romance. Their first date goes awry when Alex, the telephone repairman, arrives. Grace mistakes him for a burglar, and tries to convert him from his life of crime. Enter her strait-laced sister Harriet, and Grace has to pretend that Alex is her husband. Complications and misunderstandings abound in this fast-moving farce. The show is goofy, extraordinarily and quite unashamedly so, full of head-scratchingly illogical developments and loads of fun.
