A mystical drama of loss and rebirth in the Australian countryside. Blindsided with anguish after her husband’s sudden death, Dawn (Charlotte Gainsbourg)—along with her four young children—struggles to make sense of life without him. Eight-year-old Simone becomes convinced that her father is whispering to her through the leaves of the gargantuan fig tree that towers over their house. The family is initially comforted by its presence, but then the tree’s enormous roots slowly begin to encroach on the abode and threaten their fragile existence.... Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival. Nominated for a César Award for Best Actress (Charlotte Gainsbourg) "Visual poetry...A tour de force of jaw-dropping visual effects..." - Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal
