The seven – year-old Eliah finds an egg in the park and takes it home with him. He is expecting a little bird to hatch, but instead a little old lady comes out of the egg. She is so helpless and inexperienced that Eliah has to teach her everything: to walk, speak, eat, read and finally even to fly! Thanks to the granny from the egg Eliah is able to understand his parents, who are always so busy. After this Eliah doesn’t need her anymore, but the granny goes on to help other children.
