A twist on a fairy tale classic! Cinderella repairs ships, but accidentally leaves her toolbox on the ship that her stepmom takes to the space parade. Her fairy godrobot appears with new tools, and Cinderella is able to fix her own rocket to take to the parade. The prince’s ship arrives, but breaks down during the parade. Cinderella fixes the ship and attends the ball with the prince. When it nears midnight, Cinderella flies away leaving just a socket wrench behind. The prince searches for the girl who can fix his ship and finds Cinderella. He asks her to be his bride, but instead she becomes his chief mechanic!
