I am a princess in the castle keep.

I am a pirate on the high seas.

I am a cowboy on the lone prairie.

I am a wild girl, alone in my stouthearted tree.

So begins the story of Wild Girl & Gran - a young girl and her grandmother who become companions in imagination, schemers in adventure and free-spirited in friendship. Together they create a whimsical world that is beautifully charmed and safe.

But a shadow falls over this special place when Gran falls ill and leaves the world. Wild Girl does not feel safe or adventurous anymore. One spring day, Wild Girl's mother begins to tell stories about Gran. Wild Girl sees how, together, their love for Gran, and each other, will survive.

Wild Girl & Gran is the hauntingly beautiful tale of how imagination renews the human spirit and how love passes across generations, from mother to daughter, to calm a wild girl's heart and make her adventurous again.
