Synopsis / Plot
Alma, 20, works in a chicken farm by the village of Canet, in the province of Castellon, on the East coast of Spain. She has a profound connection with her dearly beloved Grandfather despite the fact he has stopped talking years ago. But when he begins to refuse food too Alma becomes obsessed with an idea: the only way to save her Grandfather is to recover the two thousand year olive tree that the family uprooted and sold 12 years ago against his will.
