Based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnet, The Secret Garden tells the story of Mary Lennox, a lonely little girl who is sent to live with her uncle Archibald in Yorkshire, England after being orphaned by a cholera epidemic in India.

By nursing the garden back to life, Mary restores life to her grieving uncle and his son.
