From Goya award-winning director Icíar Bollaín and BAFTA-winning writer Paul Laverty comes The Olive Tree.

Alma is a young woman very close to her grandfather. The old man has retreated into depression and dementia.  It’s because his grownup children have uprooted and sold off his beloved 2,000-year-old olive tree, against his will.  And they did it to pay for a now bankrupt tourist-restaurant business. So Alma goes on a journey to retrieve the olive tree.
