2022 | 80 mins | France

Discover the untold stories of the forest in a spectacular new wildlife adventure! This poetic and beautiful documentary follows a year in the life of a majestic, 210-year-old oak tree and its many inhabitants, exploring the immensely rich universe thriving beneath its branches.

Featuring a unique cast including squirrels, birds, ants and mice, and packed with humour, joy and heart-in-your-mouth action, this remarkably unique feature offers a fascinating insight into the heart of a buzzing, vibrant, eco-system, completely immersing the viewer into the heart of a tree and telling stories that will both touch and surprise audiences, whether young or old, and irrespective of their ecological awareness.
