In the middle of a city, a little girl tends to the last garden. But the city is breaking and everyone is leaving. Will the garden ever bloom again? In a war-torn city, a little girl tends to the last garden. But everyone is leaving and soon the girl has to leave too. The garden is all alone now but soon the seeds scatter throughout the city and the roots take hold. Slowly people return to the city and the little girl returns to her garden. The city blooms again. Inspired by true events in Syria, The Last Garden is a thoughtful, tender story of hope, touching on issues of conflict and migration.
