In fact, her main goal is to find a husband. The trouble is that she is not the only girl with this mindset. She finds herself staying at a boarding house filled with other attractive, single girls eager to find the ideal man. Eventually, Meg is employed by an advertising agency where she decides to marry the boss's younger brother. Trouble ensues when Meg and the boss himself, Miles Doughton, end up falling in love.
