But, as fate would have it, a billionaire named Oliver Warbucks decides to invite an orphan to his house for Christmas, and Annie is chosen to go. Warbucks and Annie soon become friends, and he puts up a reward for anyone finding her parents.
The plot thickens when the headmistress of the orphanage's brother and girlfriend present themselves to be Annie's parents, which of course they are not.
