Heidi

Synopsis:
This version remains true to the original story, with Heidi the orphan being passed off from a grumpy aunt to a grumpier grandFather - a loner living high in the Swiss alps. Heidi spends her days tending goats with her friend Peter and her nights studying the stars. She is happy living with grandFather alp. Nonetheless, she has to move - again - this time to Frankfurt, to be a companion for a disabled girl, Clara. Just when you're starting to wonder if anything good happens to Heidi, something does. She is allowed to return home to live with her grandfather, and he is so thrilled to have her back, he invites Clara for an extended visit, and opens his home to neighbors and friends.
