"Lola," a tiny glamorous glass fish with a "beauty" mark to boot, sits on a shelf in a Florida thrift shop, waiting and hoping she'll be adopted. No one knows how long she's been waiting patiently. From the look of anticipation in her eyes, it seems as though it may have been for a long time.
One windy day, a gentle, kind-looking man enters the shop, seemingly to browse a bit. As he looks around, he spots Lola, and she "spots" him! What Norman sees in Lola is left to one's imagination.
She's chosen! The delighted saleslady, knowing it's cool and windy outside, finds a tiny fur cloak to wrap around Lola for her departure. Lola senses that her luck has changed; and indeed, it has! She wonders to herself what Norman's intentions are, but once she's on an airplane headed north toward New York, she knows! The plan (so she thinks), is what she's dreamt about her whole life...
However, despite NYC signs everywhere-skyscrapers, huge billboards, exciting prospects-something doesn't feel right. Why? She's headed in the opposite direction toward the Jersey Shore! Yikes! Could she have been so wrong? How can this be happening? Time to confront Norman!
What Lola soon enough realizes as her journey unravels is a life she's always yearned for and soon to become hers-a beautiful one!
That is, after one scary encounter . . .
