Millie wants to be a woman of the twenties, a time period noted by new fads (short skirts and hair) and life was full of opportunities. A modern Cinderella who fears nothing and doesn't wait for Prince Charming to come to her, she actively seeks him out! However, she realizes that it will take more than the bobbed hair to reach her goals. She needs friendship from the Pricilla girls and help from the seemingly shiftless Jimmy Smith. She has pluck, determination, courage, and a sense of adventure.
