In 1947, Mary Lennox (Dixie Egerickx) is found abandoned, in her home in British India, her parents having died from cholera and she is forgotten in the turmoil of partition. Mary is sent away to her uncle, Lord Archibald Craven's Misselthwaite Manor in Yorkshire, England. She is an unpleasant and unkind young girl who has had to repress her own emotions whilst growing up in the Raj.
Upon arriving in England she meets Mrs Medlock, a strict and firm lady who is Lord Craven's servant and housekeeper. Mary is instructed to not explore the house and is confined to her room at night. There, she meets Martha (Isis Davis), a servant who is unsettled by her demands. Mary is allowed to leave the house to explore the estate and woods nearby and stumbles upon a stray dog whom she names Jemima (Fozzie). Later that night, she hears tiny screams and wailings throughout the corridors only to find Lord Craven's bedridden son, Colin Craven (Edan Hayhurst). The next day, Lord Craven sees Mary in his study and confides in her to not cause any trouble. Mary continues her escapade of heading to the forest in which she finds a hidden garden by climbing a wall. Later, on the way home, she calls out to Martha's brother Dickon (Amir Wilson) who fades within the mist of the moors. Later she finds Jemima's leg caught in a trap. She helps Jemima by freeing her from the trap but the dog runs away into the garden. Subsequently Mary continues to explore the garden
Mary is then guided by a Robin to a stone statue within the garden which has a key to the garden within it. She leaves the garden as Mrs. Medlock (Julie Walters) calls out for her. Back at the estate, Mary meets with Colin again as he talks about having a hunchback and is not able to walk. She reveals to him the garden on their estate but Colin is uninterested. She later snoops around, finding a room with pictures of both Mary's mother and Grace Craven (Jemma Powell). She grabs a souvenir, a pearl necklace.
