Description: Grandpa Leo is saddened by some devastating news and keeps it a secret from his only grandson, Samuelle. As Samuelle’s legal guardian, Grandpa Leo decides Venice, Italy would be the perfect place for a trip—and much more. Not only is Venice charming, but also Grandpa Leo’s roots stem back to this magical place. Once in Venice, they share many adventures, and Grandpa Leo stumbles upon someone special from his past. Meanwhile, Grandpa Leo struggles with when to break the news to Samuelle, but with Samuelle’s growing fondness for Venice and his new relatives and friends, the challenge may be a little easier to face. Eventually, Venice becomes a special place in their hearts, forever.
