~Plot Synopsis~
Belle Bennett stars as Odette, who early in life is forced to give up all dreams of love so that she can
look after her irresponsible father (John St. Polis). Despite her "old maid" status, Odette lives her life
vicariously through her younger sister Christiane (Reata Hoyt). Unfortunately, Christiane succeeds
only in bringing scandal and disgrace to her family -- which, frankly, is precisely what her rakish father
deserves. Meanwhile, Odette at last finds happiness in the arms of her family's attorney (Richard
Tucker) who has long worshipped her from afar. The Lily is a slightly laundered adaptation of the
stage play of the same name.
