Heidi is an orphan who spends the happiest days of her childhood together with her grandfather, Almöhi. They are cut off from the outside world in a simple cabin in the Swiss mountains. Together with her friend Peter, she takes care of Almöhi's goats and enjoys freedom in the mountains to the fullest.

But these carefree times come to an abrupt end when Heidi is taken to Frankfurt by her aunt Dete. The idea is for her to stay with the family of the wealthy Mr. Sesemann and be a playmate for his wheelchair-bound daughter Klara, while also learning to read and write under the supervision of the strict nanny.

The two girls soon become friends and Klara's grandmother awakes a passion for books in Heidi. However, Heidi’s longing for her beloved mountains and Almöhi grows ever stronger…
