Annie is a little girl whose life is made miserable scrubbing floors in New York’s nastiest orphanage, under the tyrannical Miss Hannigan.  When Annie is selected to live a fortnight in the lap of luxury with billionaire Mr Warbucks, her fate changes forever as she worms her way into the businessman’s heart.  But Annie’s journey out of the orphanage is filled with troubles as Miss Hannigan, her horrible brother Rooster and his girlfriend Lily plot to steal Mr Warbucks’ money and get rid of Annie.
