One snowy night, two babies were abandoned at an American orphanage: one of whom was dubbed Candice White due to her complexion and the name of a doll found with the child. As a young girl, 'Candy' lives a carefree life with her fellow friend Annie, until one day Annie is adopted by a rich family and forced to forget about her time at the orphanage. Candy soon follows suit and is adopted into a cruel situation, where love, reunions and other challenges await her. From country to country, Candy will experience the tragedy of heartbreak and the joys of friendship – but above all else, she will dream of the day that she met her beloved 'Prince of the Hill.'
