Little Anna

“My life is a perfect graveyard of buried hopes,” says red-haired Anna, well, at least until she arrives at the house shared by two middle-aged siblings, Maria and Martin. Originally, farmers Maria and Martin want to adopt a teen boy from an orphanage and are surprised to receive Anna by mistake. Bubbly, imaginative and sometimes theatrical Anna quickly wins the heart of Martin but is disapproved by stern Maria at first. Slowly but surely the three will grow into one loving family.  Anna will finally have a home, a community and friends. Maria will gradually open up herself as well. There is a child in each one of us. A European take on the Canadian classic Anne of Green Gables.
