The Tree / Drevo (2013)

90 min / fiction, Feature Film

The Tree tells a story of a family trapped in their home in the middle of a wide-open country, of life in the middle of emptiness, which could end and should be revealed. The film is divided into tree parts, and every part focuses on one of the characters, exploring how each of them deals with the situation. Between the imagination of little Veli, the struggles of mother Milena and the dilemmas of teenage boy Alek, the story reveals how absurd this reality is and what Alek feels has to be done.
