Considered one of the greatest film comedies of all time, Tootsie is the tale of a New York City actor named Michael, who struggles to find work in the acting business because his tendency for perfection makes him extremely difficult to work with. In order to find an acting role, and support his dream of producing his own play, Michael dresses up like a woman and auditions for a female television role. He gets the part, and has to continue his ruse of playing a woman. The plan goes well until his love interest discovers what he's been doing, and Michael must maintain his appearance while trying to win her back.
