Unlucky in both love and life, Charity Hope Valentine is a kind young woman who earns her keep dancing in the seedier bars of New York City. After being unceremoniously dumped by her latest sketchy boyfriend, Charity is determined to change her life for the better. But is a chance encounter with a shy young man in a broken-down lift the kick-start her love life needs? And how will she realise her dreams of happiness and success in a selfish, cynical world?
