Soon, Heidi begins to love her life here with the goats she looks after, her new friend Peter, his blind grandmother who dotes on Heidi and even her stern grandfather. But one day, she is taken far away from all of this to Frankfurt, a busy city where she can neither see the sky nor walk about as she pleases. As Heidi learns to live a new life, she keeps yearning for her old one, till one day, someone is convinced there is a ghost walking about at night in the house. Who is this ghost? What is the ghost’s connection with Heidi? Will it help Heidi to go back to the village and to her grandfather?
