Like an island of paradise, an old botanical garden lies forgotten in the middle of a noisy city.

Nine year old Johanka lives there with her mom and her best friend Matyas, the gloomy gardener’s son. Just as an evil Mayor is about to knock down the botanical garden paradise for the construction of an entertainment center, a Blue Tiger arrives, threatening his plans. It appears that only he can save the garden from being demolished. Now it is up to Johanka and Matyas to protect the tiger from the evil clutches of the Mayor and his henchmen.
