As well, the TV film introduces several characters and issues not present in the books.

The film was originally broadcast in Canada as Anne of Avonlea and in the United States as Anne of Avonlea: The Continuing Story of Anne of Green Gables. It was released on VHS as Anne of Avonlea.

In the 19th century, a Grande Dame (Jeanne Moreau) summons The Brothers Grimm to her palace, where the brothers discuss their interpretation of the Cinderella story and notice a painting displayed in the room. The Grande Dame shows the brothers a glass slipper and tells them the story of Danielle de Barbarac, the true story of Cinderella. In 16th-century France, widower Auguste de Barbarac (Jeroen Krabbé), father of eight-year-old Danielle, marries Rodmilla de Ghent (Anjelica Huston), a wealthy baroness with two young daughters, Maguerite and Jacqueline, but he dies of a heart attack shortly afterwards. Before dying, Auguste's last words are directed to Danielle, which causes the Baroness to envy Danielle and treat her miserably for the next ten years. While Marguerite (Megan Dodds) is hostile and cruel to Danielle, Jacqueline (Melanie Lynskey) is kinder and more respectful to her, though she often stays out of the crossfires to keep the peace.

Georgia Nicholson is a 14-year-old school girl who has many stresses in her life. She thinks her parents and little sister are embarrassing, that her nose is too big, and that she'll never get a boyfriend. She is also trying to plan her fifteenth birthday party, wanting it to be cool and trendy, which is not what her parents have in mind. On the last day before the new school year, she attends a fancy dress party dressed as a stuffed olive, "to be original", but gets laughed at by the other party-goers, most of all by Georgia's rival, "Slag" Lindsay - a pretty, blonde but spiteful girl in Georgia's year.
