Following her husband's passing, Grace (Jessica Tandy) soon gets restless in her days and tries to find something to do. Turned down by agency after agency, she discovers the wonders of cable-access TV and produces her own show where she reads great children's books out loud. In no time her show becomes a local favorite and pretty soon a single mom TV advertising executive (Stephanie Zimbalist) approaches her to sell the show to a major network.

But when the big network executives finish with their tinkering to her simple format, Grace does not recognize her own show, which has been transformed into a complex production, as she also is changed to 'Granny Goodheart'. Now Grace will have to decide whether to pursue the money with all the changes that come with it, or remain true to her simple original concept and reject the commercialization of children's dreams...
