I remember watching this TV movie (on a children's channel so it was clean). This was at least 4 years ago. There were a few (3-4) girls (or sisters). They try to escape their mean male guardian. I remember a scene when the girls are running away into the forest and their guardian tries shooting at them. I remember there was a small girl, about 7 or 8.
The girls wore frocks so I guess the year was pre-1970.
Sorry I can't be more specific.
The girls were all under 18.
