Thirteen-year-old Elizabeth Wakefield (Sally Andrews) lives in the quaint town of Middleton, New Zealand, and her lifelong dream of meeting Queen Elizabeth looks as if it may come true when the queen schedules a visit. But the youngster's loyalties (and priorities) are tested when her friend Hira (Vicky Haughton), a Maori tribeswoman, runs afoul of local authorities. It seems her eyesore of a house is smack-dab in the middle of the parade route.
