Claudia is a New York adolescent of 12 years of age who thinks she is not appreciated in her home. In protest, she runs off with George, one of her younger brothers. Claudia wants to spend her days of escape in a comfortable and smart place and chooses the Metropolitan Museum of New York. A mysterious statue, which, in those days was being exhibited in the museum, leads them to get to know the lady Basil, who is an old eccentric millionairess, and old proprietor of the work. The lady Basil helps Claudia to get over her problems of immaturity and manages to help them return home.
