Leaping from the pages of Johanna Spyri's enchanting novel to the fresh mountain air and white caps of the Swiss Alps, Heidi remains a classic family tale of high spirited adventure, treasured by generations of admirers.
When little orphan Heidi (Noley Thornton) charms her way into the reclusive life of her grandfather (Oscar ® winner Jason Robards, Julia), she is immediately drawn to the awe-inspiring landscape he calls home - a breathtaking mountain nestled within the Swiss Alps.
But before she can fully settle herself into the ways of mountain life young Heidi is sent away to Frankfurt to live with another family. Befriending a wheelchair bound girl named Klara, it is not long before the fond memories of the mountain tickle Heidi's toes, sending her on an adventure she won't soon forget.
A first-class production, also featuring award winning actors Jane Seymour and Patricia Neal, Heidi is an uplifting journey of discovery and friendship.
