Heidi comes to live with her grandfather in the Swiss Alps where she befriends the animals and children – in particular the goatherd Peter. She is later taken away to the stern and confining home of the invalid Clara where she enriches the lives of those around her but longs to return home. After many adventures she returns to her grandfather’s cabin in her beloved Alps.
