Imaginative Anne Shirley is sent to Grout Orphanage owned by sinister Madame Poubelle; where Anne’s wild imagination and storytelling antics land her in big trouble. Luckily she escapes to the pastoral world of Green Gables, where she is adopted by elderly couple Mathew and Marilla Cuthbert. Finding friends and acceptance for once in her life, all of Anne’s dreams come true. However the evil Poubelle is determined to have Anne back in her clutches. A vanishing heirloom, blundered disguises and a hot air balloon ride provide a climax to a charming new version of this traditional classic.
