"Sometimes we have trouble seeing things that are right in front of us, and no trouble at all seeing things right in front of us that are not."
After his mother's death, Joel returns home for the first time in 30 years to find her magnificent garden is virtually no more. As she wished, it remained untouched during the last years of her life, spent alone in a nursing home. As Joel begins to restore his mother's garden, he finds the bitterness and regret which have become so much a part of his life through the years begin to fade. In his mother's garden, he finds a rare sense of peace and contentment. So too, evidently, do the visitors. People who just start showing up in the garden; who come there for the peace the garden offers them, as well. And they say, the forgiveness. Old friends of his mother's, perhaps? Or, perhaps not. In her journals, his mother wrote that the gardens we create are reflections of our souls, and of our dreams. What, then, does Joel discover in his own dreams, in his own soul, as he brings his mother's garden back to life? And as he learns more about the visitors who come there.
