Synopsis

From a playground opposite a dark, mystical forest, a young girl peers between the trees in search of the spirit of her recently deceased mother. Feeling a sudden force of attraction, she wanders out alone hoping to find solace. Within, she communicates with the surrounding nature while slowly bringing it to life. She exceeds the borders of reality, making her way into the supernatural. Deep into the forest she finds comfort in an old tree, and by laying down next to it, she feels the warmth of her mother.
