Plot[edit | edit source]
In 1890s, France, as a baby, Loulou is brought by her mother to a priest known as Father Menard and leaves her in his care. Loulou's mother can no longer care for her due to being pursued by someone and leaves her with Father Menard one wintry night for her own safety. 12 years later, in the early 1900s, Loulou aspires to be a dancer, particularly ballet. But after Father Menard passes away, she's sent to an orphanage, headed by the cruel Madame Trochu, who is determined to hinder her dream and make life there as miserable for her as possible. Before that, she happens to come across some mysterious man known as The Man with The Silver Cane, who had been pursuing Loulou and her mother years ago. Later, Loulou receives a gift, which is a pair of red ballet slippers. Little does Loulou know, there could be more to these than she realizes. There's also a chance that both of her parents might actually still be alive. But before she can find out for sure and achieve her other goal, she has to overcome all obstacles in her way somehow.
