Amanda, a streetwise, nine-year-old orphan is in search of her ideal foster parents. Her favourite choice as mum is her social worker, but she lacks both the means and a husband. Meanwhile, her look-alike, Alyssa, daughter of a wealthy widower is dismayed to learn of her father's intention to remarry. Both girls run away from home and get mistaken for each other.
