A grandfather's not getting any love or attention from his family.
One night he sneaks his sleeping granddaughter from her cot and puts her in the kitchen oven.
He sets fire to the house and calls the fire brigade.
The fire brigade arrives and rescues the family pet, but not the granddaughter.
The grandfather runs into the burning house like a hero and rescues her, to the adoration of his family.
