A movie made by and for children, out of the Children's Film Unit of Great Britain, this story revolves around the efforts to restart an abandoned school in the countryside. Some parents bought the large structure but cannot raise the money to turn it into a viable, working school. Enterprising youngsters and their friends consider this dilemma and come up with a novel solution. When an elderly Grandma wanders into the building to pick up some of her things (left there from her old job), she is captured and held for ransom in a chapel. Since Granny seems to be having a pretty good time -- at last life got interesting -- and since people seem pretty generous regarding that ransom demand, maybe school bells will ring in the autumn after all.
