It’s a sad day when father decides the family can no longer care for Grandfather and he has to be taken to the home for old people on the other side of the hill. His four grandchildren are determined to keep their grandfather out of the home for old people, and it is up to the oldest, Prima, to convince Father, in a story based on a traditional Italian folktale.
