    • Synopsis
    • Once upon a time, there were three ruthless robbers who roamed the dark woods, ambushing and robbing innocent travelers.
      One day, an orphan named Tiffany is journeying by carriage to a dreary castle high in the mountains, where the Wicked Aunt runs a home for orphans. The poor kids have to work like slaves to satisfy the demands of this sinister lady and her even more sinister addiction to gold.
      Tiffany is not at all pleased by this prospect. En route to the castle, however, the three robbers strike - a lucky escape, as Tiffany sees it! While her captors are busy arguing whether or not to take her back to their cave, she has already invited herself, tricking them into believing she's an Indian princess worth millions in jewels. They agree to kidnap her, but their worst fears are soon confirmed, as she turns their orderly robbers’ lives upside down.
      When her lie is revealed, the three robbers feel as if a dear friend had betrayed them, and turn their backs on her - at first. Not knowing where to go or what to do, Tiffany finally ends up in the clutches of the Wicked Aunt. In the meantime the robbers, realizing how desperate the little girl must have been and remembering their own orphan pasts, decide to free Tiffany and to take care of her, whatever the cost.
      After many adventures, Tiffany, her fellow orphans and the three robbers defeat the Wicked Aunt, conquer the castle and turn it into their new home, a magical home where love rules and from which nobody will ever be able to throw them out.
