Description

A tale about community and our relationship with nature. Once upon a time a group of friends were seeking a place to call home. The desert was too hot, the valley was too wet and the mountain was too windy. Then they found the forest. It was perfect. The leaves gave shelter from the sun and rain, and a gentle breeze wound through the branches. But the friends soon wanted to build shelters. The shelters became houses, then the houses got bigger. All too soon they wanted to control the environment and build a huge wooden wall around the community. The wall shuts out the wind, but it also creates problems. No-one can see beyond their own property. And tree by tree the forest becomes thinner, until there is one last tree standing. It is down to the children to find a solution.
