The Guy's a Girl?!
Her dad had a gambling problem. Once he ran out of the money he got from his deceased wife, he turned to other means of getting money. Couple months later, and he's in debt and in jail.
Now, all Alex has is a suitcase and an opportunity. Promising to get her dad out of prison and pay off his debt, she has to go to the big city and make it happen. How? By dressing up as a guy, taking on the job of assisting a movie director and living with an old friend that still thinks she's a guy.
Guess having the name Alex finally has it's perks, right?
I just this is kinda like She's the Man? ... Maybe.. Anyways, enjoy!
