Sam leaps into the body of an attractive secretary, Samantha Stormer. It's 1961 and a woman's place in the world, and at the office, is set in stone. She soon finds that her promotion was because her lecherous boss, Buddy Wright, had his eye on her and is hoping to have a fling. Buddy is married but is also having an affair with Samantha's roommate, Gloria. He's promised her that he will soon leave his wife but Sam knows that unless he can convince her to break off the affair, it will only lead to heartbreak and her eventual suicide.
