Based on the 1967 Oscar winning film it is the story of Millie, a young girl from Kansas who comes to New York in search of a new life for herself in the 'Roaring 20’s'. She has a plan - to get a good job as a secretary to a very rich man, and then marry him. Of course, nothing quite goes according to plan - the owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young girls to sell to the Far East, her very rich boss is slow in proposing marriage, and the guy she actually falls in love with is poor as a church mouse.
