A warm and funny story about an unhappy old lady, who lives in a lighthouse on a small and far away Island. One windy Wednesday a small boat arrives, bringing George, the grandson she never knew she had. Slowly but surely George’s mischievous nature and happy spirit begins to melt his grumpy grandmother’s long frozen heart.
