Information from IMDb
Cherubic, adorable, and precocious Priscilla Williams lives in Colonial India with her dad,
a Colonel, and mom, Joyce. She is permitted to mingle with the soldiers.
One day she befriends an Indian by the name of Khoda Khan,
who in turn tells her about a prisoner named Mohammaudin.
She meets with this prisoner, and finds him quite approachable and friendly.
Then Mohammaudin breaks out, and joins a band of militants who are all set
to attack the British forces. Fearing loss of lives,
Priscilla sneaks into the camp of this band, locates Mohammaudin,
who is their leader, and attempts to try and talk him out of attacking the British.
She does not know that Mohammaudin and his men have plans to use her as bait
in order to force the British to give in to their demands.

The original story by Rudyard Kipling was about a boy, Percival Williams, but this was changed to a girl, Priscilla Williams, in order for Shirley Temple to play the role
Priscilla Williams: [on her new nickname] Wee Willie Winkie.
It does sound like a soldier, doesn't it?
Sgt. Donald MacDuff: Aye.
Then I'd be Private Winkie!
Sgt. Donald MacDuff:
Private Winkie it is. A full-fledged soldier of the Queen!
