Liam lives in the big, dreary city.  One day, while he is exploring, he discovers a patch of colorful flowers growing wild on an old railway track.  Intrigued, he begins to care for them.  Eventually, the small garden advances along the tracks, and all over the city, aided by others who begin to care for it as well.  Finally, the whole city has transformed into a blossoming garden.
