One autumn day, Grandad teaches Jake how to chisel his name in a piece of wood, and afterwards they go to the park.

Jake goes off to buy ice-creams and returns to find Grandad on the ground.

The ambulance arrives. Mum and Jake go home without Grandad... Jake grieves for his grandfather all winter. But Grandad has left him his workshop and Jake wants to make something special.

With Mum's help, he does - a plaque for the bench under Grandad's tree.

It is spring; for the first time in months, Jake feels happy.
