Cynthia Bishop (Elizabeth Taylor) has always been a sickly girl, and her parents (Mary Astor, George Murphy) have grown fiercely protective of their darling daughter. When Cynthia wins a starring role in the school musical, her parents forbid her to accept it, fearful that the required effort will be too much for their fragile daughter. But, inspired by her supportive boyfriend and first love, Ricky (Jimmy Lydon), Cynthia decides to perform whether her parents like it or not.
