After being shipped from one family member to another, 10-year- old Margaret Grey believes that in Hopetown Orphanage, she has finally found a place she can call home. However, the orphanage turns out to be quite different from what it seems, and its matron, Miss Switch, is not the kind sweet lady she pretends to be. Margaret, with an unlikely group of co-conspirators, make plans to rid the orphanage of Miss Switch and change it into the home they know it can be.
