Sara Crewe is a seven-year-old girl. She is the daughter of a wealthy tradesman who has left her at Miss Minchin’s boarding school while being engaged in his trade in the Indian subcontinent. Thanks to the financial status of her father, the school’s headmistress Miss Minchin treats Sara like a princess. This special treatment does not spoil the little child, though.

Nonetheless, things turn completely upside down when she receives news about the death of her father and the theft of his great fortunes.
