Sara, the daughter of a rich miner from India, comes to Miss Minchin's girls' school in London. Sara knows a lot, speaks French perfectly—she immediately becomes the best student. She helps everybody and loves everybody, from little Lottie who is too young for school and desperately needs a mother, to the servant's-children Becky and Peter, who are not considered people at all. But the most important thing is Sara's riches—which make her Miss Minchin's representative and evoke the mortal jealousy of Lavinia, the ex-favorite. When word comes that Sara's father has suddenly died bankrupted, Sara becomes a penniless orphan. Miss Minchin, scared that throwing the girl out will ruin her school's reputation, lets Sara stay, but makes her life impossible. Sara has to do the hardest work in the kitchen, mostly hungry, with all Lavinia's hatred and Miss Minchin's despisal now released at her. But Sara's spirit is not broken, and her true friends never leave her in her misery.
Sara, a pretty girl born into a rich British family in India, is treated like a little princess at a dormitory school in London. Sara's sweet school life turns to tragedy when she learns of her father's death and the family's bankruptcy. However, Sara endures her hard luck with kindness and imagination and escapes from her misery through fantasies.
When Sara Crewe's father left to work in India, she was sent to a boarding school. With her affluent background and beautiful dresses, Sara was ensured a warm welcome to her new home; but this reputation gained her enemies. Tragedy then struck when her father passed away, and her family was forced into bankruptcy, leaving Sara at the cruel hands of the school’s headmistress. Now, life for Sara is as hard as it can get, as she has been forced to become a maid in exchange for her poor room and board. With her friends and imagination at her side, Sara will try to make the best out of her bad situation.
