This earthy, stirring, poignant and playful Spanish fable is the third collaboration between Goya Award-winning director Icíar Bollaín (Take My Eyes) and Ken Loach screenwriter Paul Laverty. Beautifully shot and scored, it follows complicated, engaging young woman Alma (Anna Castillo), whose adored grandfather Ramón is mourning the loss of a beloved, 2000-year old olive tree sold against his will. Desperate to help him and with hardly any money, she embarks on a journey through Europe to try and retrieve it, aided by friends old and new and inveigling everyone she meets into her quest with unexpected consequences.
