Heidi, a five-year-old orphan, is taken to live with her grumpy, outcast grandfather in the Swiss mountains. He briefly resents Heidi's arrival, but the girl's adorable personality soon earns his heart. Heidi’s happiness ends abruptly when her aunt Dete takes her to Frankfurt, where she is to help take care of a sickly child, Klara. Heidi, with faith, hope, and the stubbornness she inherited from her grandfather, knows that someday she will be reunited with him and the beloved people of the mountain's little village. Know more
