Mrs. Garrett's working in a school in Paris. Wealthy Blair goes off by herself in search for... well, shopping. Nat and Tootie decide to help a Parisan author. And tough Jo - Jo finds romance that could lead her to live in Paris.

So it's no wonder that this is a TV movie of the 79-88 sitcom the Facts of Life. So many things happen; so little time, but les filles (girls in French) each explore Paris in their own way during the two hours the movie airs. Not on videotape, but it did air on nick at nite. Catch if it does. Because you don't want to miss this!
