With her widowed mother, precocious Priscilla travels to India to live with her grandfather, Col. Williams . A stern officer in the British army, the colonel makes it clear that a military garrison isn't any place for a child. Priscilla proves otherwise, befriending tenderhearted Sgt. MacDuff, getting caught up in the plot of a rebel leader and charming everyone in sight.
