  • After stock analyst Laurel Ayres loses a promotion to the man she TRAINED, she realizes that one thing is preventing her from moving up the corporate ladder: her gender.

Cutty, who "offers" sound financial advice through Laurel. As a result, Laurel's company takes off. But soon, EVERYBODY wants to meet the mysterious Robert S. Cutty, from her former employers to a nosy gossip columnist. At wit's end, Laurel, who's Black, decides to don makeup and pose as Cutty -- who's white. Can Laurel pull off this unusual charade? And if so, for how long?
