Swiss orphan Heidi (Emma Bolger) finds herself the ward of her abrasive aunt, Detie (Pauline McLynn), who sends her to live with her reclusive grandfather (Max von Sydow) in the thin air of the Alps. But, just as Heidi manages to penetrate her grandfather's harsh exterior and settle into her new life, Detie returns and conveys her to the expansive German estate of the Sessemanns, a wealthy family willing to pay top dollar for a playmate for their disabled daughter, Clara (Jessica Claridge).
