When young Mary Lennox’s parents are killed in an earthquake, she is sent from India back to England to live with her uncle. But he is distant and preoccupied, and she is left to mostly fend for herself in his giant mansion. Wandering among the countless rooms and expansive grounds, she finds a locked door in the garden that leads to her own secret world, which she and the children of servants of the household can escape to and call their own. Based on the classic novel by Francis Hodgson Burnet, Holland’s warm adaptation offers a timeless tale of finding one’s way through exploration and facing challenge.
