Description: An embittered, lonely old widow reluctantly tends her late husband's garden and discovers that more than flowers can bloom there when she encounters her East Indian neighbor, a woman with an ailing husband. This touching drama chronicles their friendship. The story opens as the widow returns from India where she and her recently deceased spouse spent many years working on a tea plantation in Assam. Soon after settling into her British home, she begins planting the garden her husband had always wanted to have in India. As the woman bore no children, there is no one to comfort her until she meets her neighbor and begins their tumultuous friendship.~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
