Wauwatosa West High
Mary Lennox, known as a difficult child, is sent to live at her uncle's
estate in England after her parents pass away. Misselthwaite Manor turns
out to be a gloomy fortress. Her uncle is rarely home, and his young
son, Colin, never leaves his room, convinced he's an incurable invalid.
To her surprise, Mary discovers a strange walled garden that has been
locked up for years. With the assistance of Dickon, the gardener's
apprentice, Mary brings the garden back to life and discovers Dickon's
amazing ability to communicate with animals. The garden seems to have a
wonderful, magical effect on all who come into it, allowing Mary to help
restore Colin to health and to reunite him with his father.
