Based on the novelby Johanna Spyri, this is the latest version of the universal classic about a young girl who lives with her grandfather in a modest chalet in the Swiss Alps. Together with her friend Peter, Heidi looks after her grandfather’s goats and enjoys the freedom in the mountains until her Aunt Dete takes her to Frankfurt. There, in the family of the wealthy Mr. Sesemann, she becomes the inseparable friend of sickly Clara and must learn to read and write under the supervision of her strict governess, Fräulein Rottenmeier. But Heidi will soon have to decide about whether to continue her new life or return to her beloved mountains and grandfather.
