The Olive Tree
SBS  |  December 13, 2018

Alma, 20, works in a chicken farm by the village of Canet, in the province of Castellon, on the east coast of Spain. She has a profound connection with her dearly beloved grandfather, despite the fact he stopped talking years ago. But when he begins to refuse food too, Alma becomes obsessed with an idea: the only way to save her grandfather is to recover the 2000-year-old olive tree that the family uprooted and sold 12 years ago against his will. Lying through her teeth, without a plan and even less money, Alma engages her wayward Uncle 'Artichoke', 45, ruined by the crisis, her colleague Rafa, 30, her friends Wiki and Adele, and a big part of the small community of Canet in an outrageous endeavour: to find and return the olive tree, lost somewhere in Europe, to its rightful spot in the family grove where it has been tended, and in turn, given life, for years. In Spanish.
