Anne, the secret lovechild of a newly deceased baron is the sole heir to Rosensteen Castle. Her grandmother, the Baroness, who only discovers that she has a grandchild after the death of her son, finds the young rough-around-the-edges woman at the nearby gas station and begins the process of making an educated woman out of her in order to make her a fitting heiress of the castle and title. The snake in this paradise is the Baroness' distant relative Clarissa who attempts to secure the Castle for her own son Henning by burning Anne's only proof of her identity; her birth certificate. In the meantime, Anne gets engaged to Henning. But Anne, now the centre of family squabbles, soon finds herself in a dilemma of chosing between her new polished life and her uncomplicated past life, and in the end she finds a beautiful solution that combines the best of both worlds.
