The mansion has almost 100 rooms, and her uncle locks himself in one of them. At night, she hears crying from one of the long hallways. Mary’s only way out of the big house is through the surrounding gardens. Then, Mary finds a secret, locked garden with no key and surrounded by walls. One day, she finds a way in with the help of two people she didn’t expect. Is everything dead in the garden, or can Mary make it all come back to life?
