Movie Info

Mousy housewife Miyako has written the prize-winning entry in a contest for radio dramas, with a sappy romance, set in a fishing village. Moments before the show is to go on the air, the lead actress demands a few small changes in the script: Her character's name will be Mary Jane, she'll be a trial lawyer, and the action will be set in New York City. Chaos ensues as the other cast members make their own wholesale changes and the long-suffering Miyako is forced to rewrite instantaneously as the show unfolds.
