Miss Winn's Garden
Film by Spirit of Life/Shanalyna Palmer Editor/Poster Designer Miss Winn’s Garden is a dramatic short film that explores real life problems and situations faced by foster parents and foster children. After personal tragedy strikes, Miss Winn opens her heart to children in need of a place to call home. She becomes foster parent to five young males and uses both patience and love to teach them how to accept their situations. Miss Winn encourages her wards to have faith in humanity despite the cards they’ve been dealt in life. One of her most useful tools is to have each youngster care for a plant whose state mirrors the state of their own lives. As the boys tend their plants, they learn to accept that all living things (including themselves) need love and nurturing to grow and thrive. Children become wards of the state through no fault of their own, but many believe that somehow they are to blame. Miss Winn's Garden tells a slightly different story.
