Synopsis: YOU HAVE TO EARN IT

A Metropolitan City, 1930s: A hardworking young woman has hopes of moving up through the ranks of the cosmetics company when a promotion opens up. But things get complicated when her competition is a bombshell with no interest in customer service but definite designs on their married boss. And when she accidentally tips off the bosses’ wife to the location of a tryst between her boss and the bombshell… disguises, deception and disaster ensue. A classic madcap romantic comedy about getting ahead in business and in love.
