A 14-year-old country girl, Polly Milton, visits her friend, Fanny Shaw, and her wealthy family in the city for the first time. Poor Polly is overwhelmed by the splendor and their urbanized, fashionable lifestyles, expensive clothes and other habits she has never been exposed to. Fanny's friends reject her because of her different behavior and simple clothing, and Fan herself can't help considering her unusual sometimes. However, Polly's warmth, support and kindness eventually win the hearts of all, and her old-fashioned ways teach them a lesson.
