Synopsis

A charming and poignant tale following the quest of the rejected Daniella DuPrey's yearning for her parents love. She does whatever it takes only to be pushed aside by her 'brother'.

The family have been forced to live on the streets during the Depression, so her parents decide to create a son and heir (Elroy the Third) in order to fool Grandpa so and inherit his wealth. The happy family does not last long.

Events take a turn as Elroy the Third is crowned a hero in the town, despite this being due to Daniella's hard work. The story becomes a murder mystery with a humorous twist; what goes around, comes around, or does it?
