When Granny Torrelli visits her granddaughter to help her make soup, she finds a little girl rather distracted. Things are not going well with her best friend - the boy next door. And as Granny Torrelli chops and grates and boils and stirs, the little girl begins to tell her story. Funnily enough, the girl's story is very similar to Granny Torrelli's own story and, between them, they talk and cook their way to a better understanding of each other. When the final meal is prepared and everyone sits down to enjoy the soup, and pasta, life seems sweeter and easier to understand and relationships have been enriched all more
