Heidi


Heidi
A new version of the popular childrens’ classic, now with a dubbed Afrikaans sound track. Heidi is a little orphan girl who spends the happiest days of her childhood with her reclusive grandfather, living in a simple wooden hut in the Swiss Alps. She and her friend tend to the goats and enjoy the freedom of mountain life to its fullest. That is, until an aunt takes Heidi to Frankfurt to be a companion to wheelchair-bound cousin under the strict eye of a nanny. Will Heidi get back to the place she longs for? In Afrikaans language with English subtitles.
