Scrawny, akward, unlucky Tifanfaya is given a queer start to her life as an orphan.

Uncle Brutus and Aunt Mathilde agree to look after her, but for devious reasons: Tifanfaya lives in a castle which Aunt Mathilde would like for her very own. But clumsy Tifanfaya becomes Queen of the Mountain Bandits, and with her gang of guerillas she rebels against her wicked stepmother, and wins back her castle and its possessions.
