Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Inspired by Oscar Wilde's imaginative fairy tales and set inside some of Claude Monet's greatest paintings, the initial installment of Auryn's "Painted Tales" series takes art lovers to the lavish garden where Monet discovers the importance of sharing and the magic of children at play. Monet's curmudgeonly gardener has forbidden the local children from frolicking in the flowers. As a result, spring refuses to come and the land is locked in a chilly frost. Unable to comprehend why his once lush garden is now cold and lifeless, Monet loses his inspiration until the day a group of children led by a young boy sneak into the garden to play. Much to Monet's surprise, the garden suddenly bursts to life. But then, just as quickly as he appeared, the little boy vanishes. Years later, Monet finally discovers the secret of the little boy who broke the cold spell and taught him what was truly important in life.
