In Emmy and the Iris, a modern adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s 1911 classic, The Secret Garden, a young girl named Emmy becomes angry and anxious after the death of her parents. She is moved from home to home until one day, a wealthy couple takes her to live with them in a gorgeous but mysterious castle in the beautiful French countryside.

It seems that Emmy’s life will begin to improve, but her new guardians are strangely distant and do not seem to want to have anything to do with her. Emmy seeks comfort in a secret garden on the castle grounds. The garden is key to healing Emmy from her hardships, but will it help her reveal the castle’s—and the family’s—many secrets?
