The bond between a growing boy and his loving grandfather grows with every stitch the aging tailor makes in this heartfelt tale that shows that just because someone is gone, doesn't mean they have to be forgotten. In an act of undying love, Grandpa sews his wide-eyed grandson Joseph a special blanket designed to keep the youngster cozy on cold nights and chase away bad dreams. As Joseph grows taller and Grandpa keeps sewing, the family of mice that live under the young boy's floorboard feast on the fabric while forming a close-knit friendship with the warmhearted boy who snuggles up nightly under the blanket. When the blanket is gone and Joseph's fond memories live on, the growing boy must learn what it really means to make something out of nothing.
