Grandma Portia is not the fairy tale character who bakes cookies and finds herself eaten by a big bad wolf. She makes up for her lack of traditional skills by using her favorite martial art, aikido, to trap a sinister stranger who breaks into the house. The children are surprisingly adaptable. With the help of Ram, the red-turbaned neighbor, all ends well, and the soccer match with the next street?s blue team takes place as planned. Grandma Portia leaves on her green motor cycle and the children change their minds about grandmothers.
