Teenager Casey is a foster child, a loner, and a bit of a delinquent, enjoying causing trouble in the city streets of LA. She’s given the chance to make a small fortune when she’s recruited by a conman on a treasure hunt. All she has to do is pretend to be the long lost grandchild of a wealthy English woman who owns a large estate called Candleshoe. Living with the old woman will give her the chance to search the house for clues to a trove of hidden treasure.
Casey has no guilt tricking and emotionally manipulating the old lady at first, but as she gets to know her and the other residents of Candleshoe, she begins to question her mission.
Starring David Niven and a young Jodie Foster, Candleshoe is a light-hearted family comedy that affirms that the value of a loving family is worth more than riches.
