Set in 1930’s New York during the Great Depression, brave young Annie is forced to live a life of misery and torment at Miss Hanniagn’s orphanage. Determined to find her real parents, her luck changes when she is chosen to spend Christmas at the residence of famous billionaire, Oliver Warbucks. But spiteful Miss Hannigan has other ideas and hatches a plan to spoil Annie’s search.
