Sometimes a tree knows our story best. This is a 6,000-year old love story that probes the profound, often troubled relationship between the people of the Mediterranean and their olive trees. The director’s journey takes her to unexpected places--including home--as an increasingly diverse cast of characters get involved in unraveling this tale. It is a complicated romance that is constantly evolving in a region that includes some of the poorest and most conflicted areas of Europe and the Middle East. The search for place sometimes is answered by the keeper of our hearts and secrets, the olive tree.
