While walking home from school, Annika comes upon Pippi looking out a window of Villa Villakulla, an old house she thought was uninhabited. After introducing herself, Annika asks about Pippi's family and Pippi explains that she lives alone in the villa. Pippi sings and dances her way through her story, and Annika learns that Pippi's father is a pirate, her mother is in heaven and that Pippi shares her house with a monkey and a horse. Well, if that isn't enough, Mrs. Prysselious comes by, and after she hears Pippi's story, she takes some steps. And, then what happens? Let's just say that there is a happy ending.
