Young nun Maria (Julie Andrews) in constantly getting into trouble and disrupting the quiet life of her convent. When the Mother Abbess receives a request from an Austrian widower for a governess to take care of his children, she persuades Maria to take the job. However, upon arriving at the Von Trapp household, Maria is dismayed to find the place run along military lines with the children dressed in sailor suits and answering to whistles. She introduces fun and song into their lives. Captain Von Trapp (Christopher Plummer) is initially furious but when he hears his children singing for Baroness Elsa Schraeder (Eleanor Parker) and sees Maria dancing in the moonlight, he begins to change his mind about her!
