* Based on the lives of American songwriter Stephen Collins Foster (1826-1864) and his childhood friend (later his wife) Jane "Jeanie" Denny McDowell, famous from the song "Jeanie With the Light Brown Hair" he wrote for her.

The story begins in a small town, Pennsylvania in 1838. Jeanie MacDowell is a cheerful and beautiful girl with light brown hair. Jeanie enjoys playing the piano and loves taking piano lessons from her mother.

Steven, a good harmonica player, and Bill, a black boy who is very good at playing the banjo, are great friends of Jeanie's. They enjoy playing music together like a small band.

However, Jeanie's happy life changes dramatically after her mother suddenly passes away.

Experiencing many difficulties and learning the importance of life, she decides to devote her life to helping many people suffering from illness.

This series is a highly emotional love story about the relationship between young Stephen Foster, who later becomes a famous composer and author of children's songs, and young Jeanie MacDowell, who becomes Stephen Foster's wife.
