Annie is a young, happy foster kid who&#39s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they&#39d be back for her someday, it&#39s been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan. But everything&#39s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks - advised by his brilliant VP, Grace and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy - makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he&#39s her guardian angel, but Annie&#39s self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it&#39s the other way around.
