Emily : In a yellow house surrounded by a tall hedge in Amherst, Massachusetts, lives a woman who hasn't left its grounds in nearly 20 years. Even when she invites visitors, she stays out of sight. People call her "the Myth."
Yet the young girl who lives across the street knows something more about this secretive woman. One day her mother goes to play the piano at the yellow house, and the girl joins her. When no one is looking, the girl goes upstairs and sees the reclusive poet Emily Dickinson. Their unexpected meeting results in an exchange of very special gifts.
