I am sure there is Magic in everything, only we have not sense enough to get hold of it and make it do things for us.
Ten year old Mary Lennox, a spoiled and pompous child from a wealthy family, is suddenly turned on end when her parents die. She is sent to live with her wealthy Uncle in his isolated house in Yorkshire, England. Her spoiled nature and aggression again take form in her new home, but soon a servant informs her of a private, walled-in garden with the entrance's key missing. The mysterious and cordoned garden intrigues young Mary as much as the mysterious cries that echo the hallways during the night.
