Cinderella and her fairy godmother find they have much in common.

With the help of an ingenious fairy godmother, Cinderella discovers how much the two have in common, despite their very different backgrounds. Meanwhile, Cinderella's stepmother and her mean stepsisters find out that being rude and empty cannot be disguised with phony good manners.
