In this wacky, gag-filled fairy tale, Cripperella, a young woman with a disability, is able to attend the royal ball, despite it being in an inaccessible palace, when a fairy godmother casts a spell which conceals Cripperella's disability until midnight. Although the prince is enchanted with her, Cripperella is forced to run home when the clock strikes twelve, leaving behind her glass slipper. Determined to find his mysterious dance partner, the prince sets out to see who left the shoe behind. His small-mindedness leads to an unexpected but very happy ending.
