This English comedy is written and directed by Joel Hershman. It tells the story about a prisoner soon to be up for parole who is transferred to an experimental open prison where he is given the assignment of cultivating the prison's first garden. In caring for the plants, he learns what it means to look after himself and to reach out to others. Best of all, gardening gives him a small taste of freedom — the kind that no one can take away.

Directed by Agnieszka Holland, this is an elegant and beautifully photographed screen version of Frances Hodgson Burnett's children's classic. It is an emotionally resonant earth-cherishing film about the restorative powers of nature, friendship, and nurturing.
