This film is part of the 20th Annual Chicago European Union Film Festival — full schedule at http://www.siskelfilmcenter.org/ceuff

As in their Oscar-shortlisted BEFORE THE RAIN, director Bollain and screenwriter Paul Laverty combine stirring human drama with strong political overtones. The tree of the title– massive, ancient– was uprooted years ago from a farm in Northern Spain. For hotheaded 20-year-old Anna, it represents the bond between her and her grandfatheer, and, when his health fails, she resolves to bring it back from the Düsseldorf energy company HQ where it serves as a corportate icon. In Spanish and German with English subtitles.
