Elisabeth is a little girl who knows what she wants. Problem is, that she never says please or thank you to get it. The reality of the consequences of being rude finally hit her when she sends out invitations to her birthday party - and no one replies. Her mommy agrees it is time for a change, and helps Elisabeth know just what to do. When she changes her attitude and starts to think about others before herself everyone starts to enjoy being around her and her party is a success after all.
