Life is not quite a fairytale for poor Viola. Left penniless, the young widow is forced to live with her late husband's family in a joyless old house.
There's Mr Wither, a tyrannical old miser, Mrs Wither, who thinks Viola is just a common shop girl, and two unlovely sisters-in-law, one of whom is in love with the chauffeur.
Only the prospect of the charity ball can raise Viola's spirits - especially as Victor Spring, the local prince charming, will be there.
But Victor's intentions towards our Cinderella are, in short, not quite honourable . . .
