Stella’s parents are so proud. Her teacher wants her to be the star in the school play. So her parents take her shopping for new shoes and a new dress, get her hair cut at a fancy salon, and buy the best camera there is to take pictures during the show. After all, only the best will do for their star.
After much anticipation, the adorable Stella wins the hearts of all audiences and makes her parents very proud in this charming story with a surprising finale.
