Based on Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic book, after the death of her parents in India, a young girl is sent “home” to England to live with a distant relative. She gradually uncovers the secrets hidden away in the estate, including a long-abandoned garden, and in restoring it she finds resilience and friendship.
