Australian family drama starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, adapted from the novel 'Our Father Who Art in the Tree' by Judy Pascoe. After the sudden death of her husband, Peter (Aden Young), mother-of-four Dawn (Gainsbourg) finds herself struggling to hold her family together at their remote home in the Northern Australian outback. Growing beside the family house is a gigantic fig tree, which eight-year-old Simone (Morgana Davies) becomes convinced is housing the spirit of her dead father. When the tree is scheduled to be felled because its roots and branches are undermining the foundations of the house, Simone objects passionately. Meanwhile, the other family members find their own ways to deal with their grief and loss.
