This tale centers on the March household: mother "Marmee" and her four daughters; Meg, Amy, Beth and Jo, and chronicles this New England family's joys and tribulations during the Civil War.

Buoyed by their mother, the girls learn the meaning of giving and sacrifice with a jollity that may be off-putting to jaded 21st century viewers, especially when faced with the March girls presenting a "play" in their living room to the delight of invited neighbors and the consternation of one cantankerous but lovable aunt. The girls' placid lives are disrupted when one sibling falls ill, and the story becomes as real as life, at its most joyful and painful
