Nine-year-old Marta is sent to her beloved grandfather Janosch in the country for a while. But the formerly familiar surroundings have changed: Marta is confronted with a grandfather who keeps forgetting things, dresses in a strange way and sometimes can get very aggressive. Marta comprehends that Janosch suffers from a disease and she has to act more and more grown-up.
