When Margaret shares her secret, Isabella’s eyes are opened, and she catches a magical glimpse of the garden, in its fullness. In that moment Isabella must find the courage to step beyond the gate, but as she does, she loses sight of the flowers and soon loses faith in the garden. Does the garden really exist? If it does, where did it go? With paths unfolding before her, will one of these paths lead Isabella to rediscover the garden?
