Synopsis:
When a truck driver dies suddenly near his home in rural Australia, his grief-stricken wife Dawn (award winner Charlotte Gainsbourg) struggles with her overwhelming grief, while 8-year-old Simone takes solace in the belief that her father’s spirit has taken refuge in the enormous, enchanting tree that shelters the family house. But when Dawn enters a relationship with another man, the tree’s ominously spreading roots begin to upend the foundations of home and family.
