'I would rather be with my grandfather on the Alps than anywhere on earth!'

When Heidi is sent to live in the Swiss mountains with her bad-tempered old Grandfather, everyone in the village feels sorry for her. What will a little girl do in such an isolated home, and with such a grumpy companion?

But then Heidi is whisked away again to be a companion to a injured girl in the city. She longs for her beautiful mountain home -- how will she ever get back again?
