After she breaks her mother's prized porcelain dog, Miller takes a job picking hops to pay for a replacement. She earns enough to buy a new one, but it is stolen by some other children. She chases the thieves to an old mill, where they capture her and tie her up. Lightning strikes the decrepit structure and sets it afire, but the hooligans return to rescue the young heroine just in time. An above average children's film, with believable characters and story.
