Henry Higgins, a Professor of Phonetics, encounters Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, at Covent Garden market. He declares to Colonel Pickering that in three months he could transform Eliza into a duchess.
Eliza, who moves into the Higgins household, is put through a grueling course of phonetics and elocution lessons. Eliza’s triumph comes at the Embassy Ball. She is beautiful, elegant and well-spoken and proves to be a success particularly with the young gentleman Freddy Eynsford-Hill who falls desperately in love with her.
After the ball Eliza falls into despondency as she sees Higgins celebrating his passing Eliza off as a duchess, showing little consideration for her feelings. Unnoticed, she slips out of the Higgins’ house and seeks consolation with Higgins’ mother. Higgins comes in search of her but Eliza refuses to return with him.
Back at home, Higgins realizes that he has become accustomed to Eliza. But suddenly Eliza reappears.
