A middle-aged woman finds herself simply a widow, a grandmother and a person when a friend takes her to the Stardust Ballroom, a dance hall which recreates the music and atmosphere of the 1940s. There she encounters a most unlikely Prince Charming, a middle-aged mailman. With this encounter, life takes on a new meaning for the film's heroine. Written by

This TV-movie was the basis for a short-lived 1979 Broadway musical called "Ballroom," which starred Dorothy Loudon and Vincent Gardenia with mostly new songs by composer Billy Goldenberg (though the main theme and "I Love to Dance," with some new lyrics, as well as some tango music, remain.)
