A hidden stairway to a secret room leads a little princess to a mysterious but charming silverhaired woman who gives her a magic ring to use in "time of trouble". "Trouble," the little princess soon learns, takes the shape of a group of devilish goblins who live in the ore-rich subterranean caverns of a nearby mountain. Despising royalty and all their descendants (including the little princess), these misshapen creatures plot to kidnap the little girl and flood the mines. Their efforts, however, are frustrated when the princess, with the help of a fearless and resourceful young miner named Curdie, outwit these mischievous little people and learn -- along the way -- some valuable lessons about bravery and loyalty.
