In this musical adaptation of the Cinderella story geared toward teen audiences, Cindy (Bonnie Bianco) lives with her father, stepmother, and two half-sisters in Brooklyn. The shrewish stepmom hates Cindy and is taking off for Rome to get her daughters trained in classical music. Completely against her wishes, she has to take Cindy along because her husband insists. Once in Rome, Cindy's great voice comes into its own when she sings for a band run by a prince (who has kept his true identity to himself). Everyone is invited to the prince's family mansion for a party, and when Cindy goes -- thanks to being outfitted by a friendly astrologer -- she is furious when she discovers the prince's real identity and throws her shoe at him in a fit of temper. The rest is history.
