Few actors go as far to bag a part as Michael Dorsey, who transforms himself into a woman to prove he can get hired on a soap opera. But Michael has an enviable problem when his alter ego, Dorothy, becomes daytime television's hottest ticket. His pretty co-star has no idea that her dear friend Dorothy is a man - and neither does the actress's father, who falls for Dorothy hook, line and sinker.
