This fast-moving Cinderella comedy follows the fortunes of 18-year-old Connie Doyle (Ricky Lake - The Ricky Lake Show). Homeless, penniless and pregnant, Connie's life changes forever when she is mistaken for another woman after the train she is travelling on crashes. Despite all of her protests, Connie is instantly mistaken for Patricia Winterbourne. As a result, she finds herself living in the Winterbourne mansion with grieving 'mother-in-law' Grace (Academy Award winner Shirley MacLaine - Steel Magnolias), and her 'husband's' more sceptical twin brother Bill (Brendan Fraser - The Mummy Returns). Accepted as one of his family, Connie finds her life going well for the first time ever - that is until the real father of her baby turns up and threatens all of her new found, hard won happiness.
