Virginia Vincent Folsum, better known as Ginger, is a very elegant lady. An accomplished pianist, socially active - and what style! "You are what you wear" is her motto. But Ginger's greatest passion is her pet pig, Petunia, whom she pampers endlessly. When Ginger is called out of town for a performance, Petunia is left on her own. Donning Ginger's stunning gowns, Petunia poses as Ginger and conducts business as usual, with no one the wiser. Hilarity ensues as Petunia becomes the toast of the town, proving Ginger's motto that you really are what you wear.
