Upon arriving at the penthouse of up-and-coming American entertainer Delysia Lafosse, the unassuming Miss Pettigrew becomes instantly swept up in the high-society milieu.

But serving as social secretary to one of the busiest women in the city is no easy task, and before the day is over, Miss Pettigrew and her new charge will both learn a thing or two about life and love.
