Her only close friend is the fiery Roz, though she also gets along with Roz's granddaughter Vivian. On her way to work, where she has been doing data entry for decades, she meets new young co-worker John, with whom she is immediately infatuated. Empowered by self-improvement tapes, Doris decides to go after him..
