Welcome to Candleshoe, a stately English manor where a swashbuckling pirate hid a fortune in Spanish doubloons centuries ago. And that's what young orphan Casey (Award-winning actress Jodie Foster) and a sly con man (Leo McKern) are determined to find. But first she must dupe Candleshoe's widowed owner into believing she's her long-lost granddaughter! Casey eventually discovers there may be an even greater treasure at Candleshoe -- the love of a happy family. Legendary stars David Niven and Helen Hayes join Foster in this humorous and heartwarming adventure!
