The Olive Tree

Alma, a young impulsive woman, is determined to reclaim her grandfather’s beloved olive tree after the family are forced to abandon their livelihood. We follow her emotional journey as all that she once knew is uprooted around her.

Beautifully written by Paul Laverty, The Olive Tree is a bittersweet tale of family, vindication and moral dilemma that won’t leave you indifferent.
