Eleven-year-old pastor's daughter Pollyanna is sent to live with her aunt, Polly Harrington, after her father's death in 1920s America. Auntie doesn't like children at all and is brusque and distant, but Pollyanna is an irrepressibly buoyant child and softens her aunt's hard heart with her affectionate, gentle personality. Then she has a tragic accident and loses the use of her legs. After a dangerous operation, and with the help and encouragement of the friends she's made in her new life, Pollyanna recovers and is able to join the party for her aunt's wedding.

Based on the 1913 novel and its sequel by Eleanor Hodgman Porter, this is part of the World Masterpiece Theater series, and in the true WMT tradition, ends in happiness all around after a touching, not to say tear-jerking, series of trials. Sato went on to work with Studio Ghibli and has built on his U.S. links, most recently with work for Disney on The Tigger Movie (2000).
