Charity Hope Valentine is an aptly named 1960’s New York dance hall hostess. Charity believes in true love despite being swindled by con artists, dumped in a lake by a boyfriend who stole her life’s savings and counseled by other women working at the Ballroom. Charity’s chance at happiness seems to improve when she meets Oscar, a claustrophobic tax accountant, in a stalled elevator. The romance ends when Oscar discovers Charity’s occupation and Charity must continue on her quest for love.
