The Screen Guide

After the sudden loss of her father, ten year old Simone shares a secret with her mother, Dawn. She's convinced his spirit lives amongst the high branches of their Moreton Bay Fig and he's come back from the dead to protect them. But the new bond between mother and daughter, forged through mutual grief, quickly turns to jealousy when Dawn starts a relationship with George, the plumber, brought in to remove the tree's troublesome roots.
