Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Three unlikely friends take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can't do, even in a man's world. Pushed to the boiling point, the three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, smart and sassy career woman Violet, newly-separated new hire Judy, and bright and beautiful country gal Doralee, live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While the boss remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?
