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 has 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 two-thousand-year 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 (“Wikipedia”) 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 over 2 millennia.
