The year is 1947 and Mary Lennox is a recently orphaned girl still grieving the loss of her parents after they suddenly die in India from cholera.

As family secrets begin to resurface in Misselthwaite Manor, a robin guides Mary to a mysterious and magical hidden garden and she begins to rediscover her zest for life again.
