A grandmother who lives with her very big family yearns to be left alone to finish her knitting. She is determined to find a quiet space all to herself so she can get her work done. Unbeknownst to her family, she slips out one day and begins her quest to find a quiet place. Along the way, she meets bears, goats and even aliens, but nothing will stop her from her ultimate goal: knitting warm sweaters for her grandkids.
