Young orphaned Heidi, in the care of her callous Aunt Dete, is deposited in the care of her bitter grandfather, Adolph; he slowly takes a liking to her and her friendship warms him enough to reintegrate with the rest of society. But then Aunt Dete returns, kidnapping Heidi to make her the paid companion of Klara, the wheelchair-bound daughter of her employer, Fraulein Rottenmeier. When Klara recovers, Rottenmeier's housekeeper tries to sell Heidi to gypsies.
