20-year-old Alma works on a chicken farm in the austerity-hit Castellón region of Spain. Her grandfather is on hunger strike, and has not spoken since her father sold the family’s ancient olive tree. Alma believes the only way the old man can be saved is if they find the tree, replanted somewhere in Europe. Persuading her uncle, her workmate and friends to join her, they set off in a ‘borrowed’ truck to track it down. Restoring the tree will restore hope to their family and the region.
