Mary Lennox lives in India and grows up with her Ayah (an Indian nursemaid) waiting on her hand and foot, becoming spoiled and tyrannical. After a cholera epidemic leaves Mary as the only survivor, she is sent to England to live with her uncle, Mr. Archibald Craven, a hunchbacked recluse - and her only living relative. When Mary arrives at Misselthwaite Manor she meets Martha, a kindly, down-to-earth servant, and one of twelve children from a neighboring farm across the moor. Mary befriends Martha's brother, Dickon who loves animals and the moor. When she discovers another boy in the mansion who cries in the night, and then discovers a locked garden in dire need of a gardener, her life and those of all around her are about to change.
