Wistful and profoundly intimate, Adele's Garden delves into the friendship between a teenage girl (Elaine) and an elderly woman (Adele) who lives in an elegant old house with a beautiful garden. They have an immediate affinity for one another. In a continuing series of regular visits, Elaine tells Adele about her family, friends and particularly about the boy at school on whom she has a crush. Elaine's confusion about the appearance of love in her life sparks Adele to reflect on the one great love of her life, bringing Adele and Elaine closer in ways neither expected.
