She is sent away from India to Yorkshire, England to live with relatives whom she has never met. Her own personality blossoms as she and a young gardener bring new life to a neglected garden, as well as to her sickly cousin and uncle.

The Secret Garden is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
