A normal everyday family in the suburbs of London live next door to a very big, wealthy home. It has been deserted for years, but one day a rich family moves in with a little girl named Gem. Belinda is 8 years old and has two Japanese dolls and her own Japanese doll house with real shoji screens, miniature plants and all. She so wishes she could play with the little girl next door, but Belinda is something of a Tomboy and the girl's aunt doesn't want her niece associating with a ruffian.
